Surf City Barrier Reef Carnauba Wax Review Including Pictures, Video and Thoughts

After being the first person in Northern Ireland to purchase the Surf City Barrier Reef wax and having it a few weeks now today after cleaning the car i decided to try the product out and see how good it is...

I applied one layer of wax to the car after washing and drying it, this product was so easy to apply it goes on so easy with very little effort and very little product to cover the area i was waxing and after letting the wax dry for about 20 mins i buffed it off with the microfibre clothe supplied with the wax and again with very little effort wiped straight off with no drag on the clothe no white powder or dust at all and gave a real deep wet look to the car and this is by far the best wax i have used yet, i recommend this for people not wanting to spend a fortune on waxes and for the amount you get for the price it will last a very long time as it barely took any off the top layer of the wax in the tin.

few pictures of the reflection and wet look it gives...















video of how the water runs off the car with one thin coat of this wax...


how little wax that wax needed off the top layer for to wax the whole car...

Your subaru looks in mint condition, you can tell the cars been machined enhanced, lovely gloss from gloss and great wheel combination.

I swear this wax in tin is Meguiars 16, with a added applicator and cloth, with new packaging.

I don't mind repeating myself all over this place so here we go....

It is absolutely nothing like Meg's #16, the ONLY similarity is the Colour, it's a bigger tin, different texture, different smell....

I don't understand how people can swear 2 products are the same just by looking at a pic! Surely you would then believe 2 White waxes are identical as that's all you can tell from a pic??

Have you ever used Meg's 16 and left it to cure or done a whole car before buffing off? Only then would you realise just how different these products are, I don't think they could be more opposite to be honest.....
