I have enjoyed many of Sonax’s products over the years and continue to use a fair amount of them on a regular basis. I did not notice this particular product until I saw it mentioned in another article, so I decided to pick some up since I have been using the same quick detail spray for about a year now and I am always looking to try new things.
As with most quick detail sprays, Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer can be used to remove light dust and contaminates in between regular maintenance washes, however I typically only use quick detail spray immediately after a proper wash to help clean up any remaining water spots/streaks and to help boost the protection on the paint.
Before using Brilliant Shine, the vehicle was thoroughly washed and then carefully dried. I applied Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer by lightly misting it directly onto the surface and then carefully buffing it off with a plush microfiber towel. Remember to flip to a clean, dry side of the towel as needed to avoid streaks. I prefer to use a thick, ultra plush towel for QD applications.
I found the product to be extremely easy to apply and remove. Only very light pressure was needed and I had zero issues with streaking or smearing.
It is worth noting that, like most quick detail sprays, you do not need to use much product to cover the vehicle. Only a couple of sprays are needed to cover an entire panel and using excess product may create streaks. After application, the surface was smooth and very glossy!
Several days after applying Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer, this car sat out in a pretty good rain storm. I went out to examine the beading action, and was pleasantly surprised. Even though the vehicle already had a good layer of protection, which beaded nicely on its own, I noticed even better beading and sheeting when it was topped with Brilliant Shine Detail Spray.
The beads were small, tight, uniform, and spherical in shape – all indications of a fantastic layer of protection. I’ll never get tired of seeing water bead up like this on a nicely protected surface!
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to enhance the gloss and protection on your vehicle, Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer is a fantastic option! I really enjoyed using this product and was very pleased with the results.
Thanks for reading!
