As i got some samples from Angelwax, i promised you guys here to write a little review of their products.
First a picture of the products i got from them:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/078dels7gswry7j/2012-05-18%2016.08.40-8.jpg
From the left to the right we have:
AnGel - Interior Vinyl and Plastic Restorer
Superior Automotive Glass Cleaner
Superior Wheel Cleaner - "Bilberry original"
Superior Carpet and Upolstery Cleaner
Superior Automotive Leather Cleaner
Superior Automotive Shampoo
In front we got 2 small wax samples.
Angelwax - White
Bilberry Wheel Wax - Red

All their products have a fruity smell to them, exept glass cleaner which has a chemical smell when freshly applyed, and then changes to a fruity smell also, and the leather cleaner smell like others similiar products.
None of the smells are overwhelming, and rapidly fade away.

I will write a few words on how the products in seperate post below, and edit when i get more products tested.

Angelwax Shampoo
https://www.dropbox.com/s/1qiqu6tmjggrd ... .55.42.jpg
I mixed 10-15ml to 20 L of water, and gave it a swirl and it foamed up nicely in the bucket.
I then soaked the car in water and washed it using 2 buckets and a noodle microfiber wash mitt.
The first thing i noticed was how the wash mitt felt like it was gliding very easy over the paint, definitely better than my Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo, and on par with my DodoJuice Supernatural shampoo.
I also noticed that it lifted of dead bugs of the front bumper much much better than AG shampoo, pad the bugs with the wash mitt let them soak a minute and they went straight of, no rubbing or bug remover needed.
The shampoo kept on foaming throughout the wash, and it added something to the paint as i noticed the water sheeted of the car much better than before the wash, leaving next to nothing water to dry of the car.
I then tried it on my really dirty front wheels, just to see how good it was, and this was not so good, as it couldnt lift the heavy dust inside the wheels, but for a regular wash it would be just fine to clean the wheels also.

And here is some pictures of the car during and after the wash:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/vsbb6dvf6aliedm/2012-05-21%2021.40.40.jpg - Notice how little water is on the car.

This is definitely my favorite shampoo for regular use, as its easy to use, pretty high concentrated, good lubricated and removes dirt surprisingly good.

Angelwax Superior Wheel Cleaner

https://www.dropbox.com/s/idsi5ialdmks6ev/2012-05-21%2021.56.08.jpg
I put half of the sample in a small spray bottle and sprayed a bit on my front wheels and just by the pressure of the spray bottle it removed alot of dirt.
I then used a microfiber wash mitt to clean the wheels and the wheel cleaner removed 95 percent of the dirt just with 2 rubs with the mitt, even inside the wheel, so a really good product, and it felt like it some more cleaning power than ValetPro Bilberry Wheel Cleaner diluted 1:5, and it felt more lubricated also.
It also removed alot of dirt from the tires.
Forgot to say that the wheels arent sealed or protected in any way, and never have been.
So now to the pictures:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/rlru1chono5mt57/2012-05-21%2021.41.35.jpg
https://www.dropbox.com/s/644xdz356g7uutt/2012-05-21%2021.41.18.jpg
https://www.dropbox.com/s/q9cunm6s3c2gexa/2012-05-21%2021.41.20.jpg

And a few last words about the product, really good cleaning power, can easily be diluted 1:2 with water on not so dirty wheels, smells nice and is easy to use, but if you have ValetPro Bilberry or similiar then i wouldnt change to Angelwax wheel cleaner.

Superior Automotive Glass Cleaner

Just tried the glass cleaner today as my windows where pretty soiled with dirt and had lots of waterspots, used 1-2 sprays of glass cleaner from a finger spray bottle on each window and a waffle microfiber cloth.
The cleaner worked much much better than my valet pro glass cleaner, and leaved no streaking or marks on the windows, even when used directly in the sun.
So yet another product I'm gonna order some more of.

Angelwax - White/regular

Finaly got my self to gether and got my bootlid prepared for a fresh layer of wax, as my AG HD wax was still beading along nicely, so a APC and Carpro Eraser took care of that.
I then applied the Angelwax with a foam applicator, and it went on easier than my AG HD wax, as it was more paste like, and you could feel with the applicator where you have applied the wax, as there was a noticeable difference in "drag" on it, i really liked that, because i have a silver car and it can be hard to see where you have applied the wax.
A few minutes later and i buffed the wax off, i thought it would need more time, but the lid was really hot.
At first i didnt notice any big difference, until i buffed it again, and it really made the metalic flakes pop, compared to AG HD wax.

Good wax, but for the price you can get other waxes that do the same, but the smell was amazing, really sweet almost vanilla like.

Bilberry Wheel Wax - Red

Tried this on one of my front wheels, as they get really filthy with brake dust and road dirt after a week.
I dapped the applicator in the wax pot and began applying the wax, and one dap was enough for 1/4 of the wheel, and because the wax is red you can easily see where you applied it, and if you have a to thick layer on, again this wax was really nice to apply, as it also was more paste like.
Then i buffed the wax of, and this also went really easy, and you could see where you needed to buff again because of the red color.
Didnt take any pictures of it as i didnt notice any difference in the look or feel on the wheel.

Will update this post in a weeks time, regarding dirt and brake dust and cleanability.
Update:
The wax only held about 2 weeks time, but it certainly made the wheel easier to clean compared to one without wax.

Superior Automotive Leather Cleaner

Tried the leather cleaner today with a detailing brush, as recomended on the bottle, and it didnt really do any magic, neither at cleaning or doing anything for the leather.
So not something im gonna use again, some soap shavings and hot water worked alot better.

Edit, tried it on a leather chair today, and it actually did a really good job, cleaning the leather and bringing it some shine again, so i guess it works better on some leathers than others, or just my leather seats in the car being to clean and maintained :D

I live so far out on the country that we only have 2 busses coming thru the city a day :) from and to the school.
No busses at all on holidays and weekends :shock:
But just added a line to my will to be safe:
All Angelwax products must be reviewed on CYC as my last wish :D

So no problem, im gonna try their waxes and maybe some more tomorrow.

Similar experience with the shampoo...very lubricated with good cleaning power...and it's cheap :D

I have yet to test my AW wheel cleaner.

It will be interesting to hear your opinions on the glass cleaner. A really good test is how it removes the baked on residue left by window stickers.
