Ice Car Polish Reviews & Prices
Thanks for reading my ice car polish reviews. This interesting polish forms part of the Ice Car Care products range and is sold widely across many car care companies in both the USA and Europe. It has a mighty reputation and I have used this polish a lot so I think I am well placed to offer my own review.
In these reviews I will also show what other users have found.
Turtle Wax T-468 Ice Liquid Polish
Like many of its competitors it comes in the standard 16 oz size. The container stands out from the normal packaging with its ice look of deep blue and white frosty background. It is priced at around $15 and that would place it slightly above average in price compared to their competitors. The average price for a car liquid polish is around the $10-12 mark. So the big question is it worth the extra few bucks?
Turtle Wax T-468 Ice Liquid Polish Features
Turtle the manufacturer claim that this wax can be applied on hot surfaces or even in direct sunlight. It also comes with all you need including a custom applicator and microfiber towel for polishing. One of their main claims is that due to a special water clear formula this can also be used, not only on the metal work, but also on the trims of plastic, on vinyl and any rubber seals around the glass on the car.
They state it will not leave any white residue if it is applied and polished off. Like many of the other manufacturers these are indeed bold claims. Did it stand the actual test of real users though?
Ice Car Polish – Reviews From Amazon Buyers
Here I found a total of 73 reviews and they were broken down as follows:

Approximately three quarters of actual users found the product worked well for them. Around 12% gave it a poor rating so this bears closer examination I believe. I will reserve my own review for now as I have used the product myself.
For those who rated this product poorly there were two main complaints. The first was that they didn’t see any great shine and the other was that the product was rather oily and watery. Some people actually said it streaked their paint and have lodged complaints so clearly they did not have a good experience. These complaints remained consistent irrespective of the age of the car.
Those that liked it really liked it and the ice car polish reviews were good especially about the ease of application. They also commented positively that it worked well on the smaller chips you can get on your car and that it was great to apply in the sun. Some complained a tad about being difficult to see the polish on a light coloured car but to be fair, the same could be said for almost all polishes on light cars.
My Own Review
I then used their microfiber cloth to remove the polish. I would rate the shine left as being just ok. I noticed when I buffed it using an expensive microfiber I have, that it looked a lot better. It didn’t take much elbow grease to take the wax off and it worked fine on the vinyl and plastic. I would rate the product as being ok with the main benefit being the ease of application.
I wasn’t that impressed though. It worked and the shine was ok but I have got better shines with cheaper products. For me the selling point was that you could do your whole car at one go. I found it lasted for just about two weeks. What I did find that by doing this a few times over a three month period the shine improved so it would seem the more you use it the better the shine gets. It does eventually fill in small chips as well.
The bottle says you can get eight applications but I got six. Perhaps I was a little heavy handed when making the application and you may indeed get the stated eight applications. This is a car polish I have used a lot though and I have yet to get eight applications from the one bottle.
The best way to summarise Ice Car polish is to say that most people like it and those who hate it really hate it. I found the product to be just ok but personally wouldn’t use it. I prefer Liquid Glass by a long way. If you are looking for something that does all the car quickly then this is worth a try. This is the single biggest selling point for this polish as far as I am concerned.
