Everyone has their go to cleaning products and sometimes it’s hard to break the cycle and try new ones. For me it was Meguiars products, who are still my number one. But recently I bought a big set of Auto Finesse to shake things up. I bought a bit of everything just to see if all the products were really worth the hype.

As Auto Finesse are a relatively new brand as apposed to others, I was a bit apprehensive, but I will do reviews of everything I bought and used for the last few weeks of cleaning.

Pre Wash / Snowfoam

So first thing I like to do when I was my car and quite a few of you do it aswel, is to pre rinse the car with the hose and blast off any loose dirt. Then I will move onto a pre wash or snowfoam. This is great for your car as it helps to loosen any dirt on your delicate paint work and stop swirls and scratches happening when you get to the mitt wash phase.

The product I bought for this was Avalanche original. I would have gone for a funny smelling one because they offer different smells, but this was a top recommended.

So my thoughts off the bat were that Avalanche Snow Foam using my Autobrite Lance created some serious suds, really thick and stuck to the car well. It smells really nice, which I like about a snow foam because it does go everywhere when I wash. So that’s 2 ticks so far.

The size of the bottle is huge, I got a 5 liter one because I knew I would go through it, but the bottle has lasted some time and it’s probably something I would buy again. Especially for the price.

Pros

  • Great suds that stick really well
  • The price is close to what you’d pay for a smaller tub of a lesser brand
  • Tub lasts a long time
  • Really does the job at getting the dirt up
  • Smells amazing
  • Won’t strip wax
  • Comes in different scents

Cons

  • Not quite pH neutral but still won’t strip wax

Overall I think the avalanche snow foam is fantastic bang for buck, the suds are great and the value is great. This is one I really struggled to find fault with, it really has topped my usual snow foam and I will be buying this again.

Shampoo

If your like me the contact wash is the scariest, it’s where the swirls can happen and potentially damage your paint. So in order to get a good finish before it is sealed in with polish and wax, I need a good quality shampoo to prevent damage and allow the wash mitt to glide over the paint.

I went with Auto Finesse Lather. Again I chose the original scented rather than the fruity options that are available. I also like to use my Meguiars Grit Bucket which I prefer but I’m sure Auto Finesse have one that does just the same job.

After giving it a good wash a few times, I’ve noticed it has a very velvety feel, allowing the wash mitt to glide over with ease. It also has a great smell and produces a good amount of suds, although I found I had to use more to get the same amount as the Meguiars.

The price seemed high at first but I realized it’s a bigger bottle than my normal purchases, so it was actually right on the money, especially with the quality. This stuff really will help protect your paint in a contact wash and although I won’t change from Meguiars I would use it again.

Pros

  • Brilliant velvet feel
  • Great scent
  • Fruity options available
  • Plenty of suds
  • Big lasting bottle at a great price
  • Streak free
  • Can be used on wheels but a wheel cleaner is recommended

Cons

  • Need to use more than other brands to get the same quality

Overall it was hard to find the cons of this product, if you want to buy a shampoo that will last you a long time, save your paintwork from swirls and has a great brand, go with this or Meguiars. It’s great stuff and won’t break your bank.
