The most versatille polishing/compound product
April 11, 2021
This product is amazing because depending on the pad you can use this as a single step polisher, compounder and it leaves SIO2 coat that hardens so when you apply a ceramic coat after it prevents you from inducing scratches and swirls while you are wiping off the ceramic coat, it has no dust and is just a pleasure to work with. One of this bottles is good for 2 cars, which makes it very economical.
ProsNo dust Amazingly easy to wipe off Super versatile Leaves a Si02 coat preventing scratch when you apply you ceramic coat Various application with this little bottle so very economical

I know this product has been on the market for a long time, it is a fantastic finishing polish that delivers the shine customers are looking for

Nice, very nice! It will cut some with a medium cutting pad, but I don't use it to cut, I use it as a polish. With the Carpro gloss pad, it really puts a super high gloss finish, and has some good duration. This is a polish I highly recommend. Its makes a great pre-coating polish, or a high gloss stand alone LSP.
Great last step before Cquartz

I did a paint correction with Meguiars M105 using a Flex 3401, and followed it with CarPro Essence Xtreme Gloss Enhancer. (Applied with Flex 3401 and Lake Country white pad.) The paint was noticeably glossier and smoother after Essence. It wipes off very easy and leaves virtually no dust.

Mainly use it as a finishing polish after I've corrected the surface. OMG, AMAZING finish. This polish can also be used on its own. BEST finishing polish out there!

Car-Pro has many great products. This isn't one of them. While it does wipe off easy, it doesn't correct paint and on darker cars you can actually see discoloration from the Si02 it contains. Just creates a headache. Use a polish/compound/AIO you already like, eraser oil and ceramic coat. This advise will save you time and money. I used Matching Car-Pro pads and Rupes to gather these results.

My first testing with this product was simply a hand application, so no doubt did not reap the correcting abilities of this product. I applied by hand to an individual panel, let set up a bit, then removed. The product did work me a little bit more than most regular liquid LSPs, sort of reminded me of working with a Hand Glaze. But it removed fully, and cleanly, and what it left behind was an absolutely pristine clean paint surface. Very impressive, and then understood how this product then works as a prep prior to using a Coating. The product mimicked a good paint cleanser at the point, and the paint looked sparkling brand new. I noted a little "grabbiness" in feel to the paint, even when coming behind with another clean MF Towel as a final wipe, and again had the impression of a good paint cleanser. But what I also noticed when running my fingernail across the paint was a seeming rock hard shell of protection left behind. I may be wrong, but have the impression that one could come behind with a variety of other LSPs, Detailer Sprays, and other Toppings of choice, and I chose to try both Carpro Reload, and GTechniq C2V3 as toppers. Both added more slickness of feel. Some good weeks have gone by since, with rains, filth, road grime, washings, but still note that rock hard protective feel to the paint with a wash, thus this product surely appears to be one that also lasts very well and is durable. I've never before used an AIO that seems to protect as well, nor leave such a pristine look to the paint. I think this product is a winner, it was basically tested and used to protect my daily driver through the winter months where upkeep becomes harder to do. Next time, and as the weather warms some, I definitely want to try this product with my DA Machine, and a soft Finishing Pad.
ProsDoes what it says and claims, best AIO product I've ever used.

excellent surface prep for coatings and other lsp's
August 6, 2016
excellent surface prep for coatings and other lsp's. i have used this as a surface prep for coatings and sealants with outstanding results. it not only polishes the surface, but fills and leaves a light quartz type coating behind with outstanding shine. easy to apply and remove. i believe it will make an excellent stand alone product too as an aio. this is money well spent.
Prosgreat polish with filling ability and base for coatings and other lsp's. very nice shine even great as an aio easy to apply and remove
Consa little expensive, but worth it.

Goes on smooth, gloss can be adjusted by the type of polishing or finishing pad is used. Car Pro's final step of polishing/finishing before the coating is applied, and the best part of this deal is the fact that the coating can be applied on top of this product. How's that for convenience?
ProsGloss is fantastic, and Essence is an integral part of the coating process, the last step before the coating is applied.
ConsI can't think of any downside to this polish
