Some of you that follow me on Facebook know that back in February I was in a car accident that ended up totaling out a car (insurance speak) that I had owned for the past 13 years. Talk about a bummer right. Well, in the process of finding a new car I selected a 2014 Impala. This by far was the nicest vehicle that I ever purchased and with that in mind I knew that I wanted to do whatever I could to keep this nice, even in the winter. However, in Michigan this is next to an impossibility.
Case in point, the day that I bought the car and brought it home the weather was not good and even though they detailed the car, after only the ten minute drive the car was covered in salt and grime, very disappointing. All of us in Michigan do what we can to definitely keep our vehicles clean throughout the winter, especially to keep the salt off the car and I know that I will do the same.
Because of this battle that I am continually waging both in and outside the car, I was very excited recently to receive a surprise package from Turtle Wax, filled with all of the new Smart Shield products to care for and protect your vehicle. For me this was important as I wanted to make sure that the money that I put into the car was protected for the future.
The new products within the Smart Shield system include:
- ICE® Wash & Wax: The first step in any car care routine, ICE® Wash & Wax delivers unbeatable foaming and cleaning. Now with Smart Shield Technology and Carnauba Wax, ICE Wash & Wax is Turtle Wax’s best shining wash ever produced. Retail value: $9.99.
- ICE® Shine Lock™ Sealant: The New ICE® Shine Lock™ Sealant is the foundation of the Smart Shield system and is the first layer of protection for your car. Delivering 12 months of protection in just 15 minutes, the super concentrated formula is enough for up to four cars and works on all exterior surfaces, even glass. By building an invisible barrier, Shine Lock Sealant protects your clear coat through all four seasons. Retail value: $19.99.
- ICE® Liquid & Paste Wax: ICE® Liquid & Paste Wax with Smart Shield Technology™ provides an added layer of protection and deepens the lasting, reflective shine. The liquid or paste can be applied to all exterior surfaces without leaving a white residue even in direct sunlight. For best results, apply a fresh coat before every season. Retail value: $17.99 (liquid) & $14.99 (paste).
- ICE® Spray Wax: ICE® Spray Wax with Smart Shield Technology™ is the longest lasting premium spray wax from Turtle Wax. All it takes is 10 additional minutes for a boost in protection and brilliant shine after every car wash. Retail value: $9.99.
- ICE® Detailer: ICE® Detailer is used for quick clean-ups to remove light dust, fingerprints and spots before they become stains. Designed specifically to work with all products in the Smart Shield Technology system and to boost shine. Retail value: $9.99.
I learned that the formula was developed by Turtle Wax using the most advanced scientific polymer engineering. With every Smart Shield product used, interlocking polymers increase the level of shine and protection. Car lovers can use any combination of Smart Shield products to add a Lasting Diamond Brilliance™ to their car’s finish.
I have used Turtle Wax Ice Products in the past and the results of using them were so amazing. I started using some of these new Smart Shield products on the interior of the car. In doing this I will say that the products worked great. They left a great sheen on the inside of the car which stayed for a long time.
While I have not had the chance to try out all of the exterior products as my exterior water spout is not accessible in the snow, and if I did, my water pipes will probably bust.
That being said I am so happy to receive this and I know that as the weather continues to get warmer I will continue to use them on both the interior and exterior of the Impala. If the results on the outside are anything like what I have seen on the inside then I would say that Turtle Wax is definitely something that will remain in my home for a long time to come.
The new line of Smart Shield products are ideal for every car lover, from ultimate enthusiasts searching for high-end products, to beginners looking for the easiest way to keep their car looking pristine and protected. Look for Smart Shield products in select retailers where car care products are sold nationwide.
