Turtle Wax
Carnauba Car Wax


Turtle Wax carnauba car wax has been around forever and a day; probably the most recognizable name when it comes to car waxes. Despite this brand having been around longer than myself, I have never actually met any professional detailer use any of the Turtle Wax products. They seem to remain as strictly a retail car care products. If you are a die-hard Turtle Wax car care products fan, then you needn't look any further. But if you are looking for ways to improve the results you are currently getting, as well as find products that deliver professional results, then follow my Turtle Wax review. I can show you how to get superior results with less efforts than you are currently putting into the beauty and health of your cars paint.

Turtle Wax Carnauba Car Wax Review

  • Easy to apply.
  • Not your traditional paste wax; soupy and gelatinous
  • Very difficult to remove;despite what the packaging says.
  • Very dusty during removal.
  • Will stain black trim

I have personally never used this Turtle Wax carnauba car wax product at a professional or personal level. I had to find out first hand just what this product has to offer us, and see if there was much value to be had in this long established name of car waxes.

If you are looking for that "old school" feeling of waxing your car, then look no further. Complete with lots of rubbing, sore shoulder, and that sense of accomplishment, this Turtle Wax is the ultimate in "I want to spend all day waxing my car, and have a really sore shoulder the following day because I don't know any better" car wax!

Sorry Turtle wax...but it is what it is, and I found this product easy to put on, but incredibly hard to remove.

This product is packaged like a traditional paste wax, but it is rather soupy and should really be sold in a squeeze type dispenser; like a ketchup squeeze bottle. In fact, because of its consistency, it applies easier than the other true paste waxes but that is where the redeeming benefits end with this product.

If you are looking for far superior results as well as a much better overall user experience, then follow along as I lay out my professional car wax recommendations to replace the outdated performance of Turtle Wax carnauba wax.

This product from Meguiar's remains as one of my all-time favorites and produces results worthy of professional level requirements! Use the Ultimate Paste Wax as the foundation on your car paint every as often as you like or at least every 3-4 months.

  • Use after your regular car washing duties to create that just waxed look in a fraction of the time.
  • So easy to use, you may find you are willing to wax more often. I actually use it every week on my own black cars due to the fact that it is so light and easy to use and produces amazing visual results comparable to most liquid or paste waxes.
  • So light and easy to use, can be used in place of your spray detailer with the added benefit of actual wax protection.

Darren's Professional Tips

This product from Meguiar's remains as another one of my all-time favorites! A must have for use on any black car to create that just waxed look in minutes of time. Use in-between regular applications of paste wax as a wax extender, immediately after washing, or anytime you are looking for that just waxed look in a fraction of the time of traditional wax applications.

In Conclusion...

Unless you are a die hard Turtle Wax fan I would definitely opt for a different product. I think I have been very direct and honest in this review. If you do take my advice and go with the Meguiar's products don't forget that a very critical step to superior end results is preparing the paint surface first by using detailing clay first. I can't stress this enough! If you are here as a first time visitor, please see all the write-ups regarding the clay bar and proper use of this amazing wonder!
