Turtle wax ice

Anyone ever used turtle wax ice wax? I used it when I went to mustang week and it has it's pros and cons, for me it was insanely oily. Yes it shined it up but you could simply touch the car and your finger would leave streaks going across it. I don't think ill ever use it again though, anyone else got any stories? Or used it?

I used to use Ice paste, when I owned Performance White. The blue color was easier to see and I didn't miss spots, applying or buffing. Now that I own Race Red, I use Ice liquid. I'm happy with it, but not sure it lasts all that long. But, I touchless wash and wax often, so that really doesn't matter much. As far as an oily feel, I haven't had an issue there. I DO have an issue with it making my car a dust magnet. Seems like my car holds a light dust and literally has to be CA Dustered off. Excessive highway speeds doesn't leave the dust behind. I'll probably be trying other waxes before long. I just don't want a wax that requires boat loads of elbow grease to apply and buff. I'm an arthritis sufferer. If you have any suggestions on a wax that I could use in that regard, I'd appreciate your input.

I agree this was very easy to apply! Also you can use it on black plastic and it will actually restore it, it works very well. Maybe I didn't apply it correctly and that's why it was so oily? Idk. I've got the dust thing going on as well. All I gotta do is wash it though and it feels brand new

I'm glad you brought up the ability to use Ice on plastic. That is a definite plus, in my book. When I wax, black plastic, head/fog/marker/tail light lenses, quarter windows, grille pony and side mirrors get a coat. Never a fog or white residue.

As far as the oily feel and finger streaking goes, your body oil may be the culprit. Some folks have oily skin and even leave prints on dry surfaces.
