In the 2013 Auto Express Best Wax and Polish Award Armor All Shield wins

Outshining all the other entrants advanced paintcare product, Armor All Shield, was selected from 24 other entrants in the annual Auto Express Product Awards, winning the Best Wax and Polish category.



Paint protection is at the heart of the Auto Express test and the magazine made it tougher in this year’s awards, not only monitoring water beading through seven winter weeks but also including regular washing to more closely match what happens in every day motoring. The test procedure also took into account ease of application and price, including the fact that hard waxes are used more slowly than liquid versions.

Announcing Armor All Shield as the outright winner, Auto Express said:


Our revised test with regular washes suited Shield as it claims they revitalise the protection. It certainly worked in our seven-week test, with Shield shifting water quickly right to the end. It also claims to be better than a wax – and it is definitely easier to apply as the free-flowing formula takes little effort to put on, and quickly buffs up to a smart shine. Combine this with a price that is substantially lower than many rival waxes and you have a clear winner.”

Shield comes with a no-quibble money-back guarantee, such is Armor All’s confidence in its performance. At £18.99 for a long-lasting 500ml bottle – complete with a sponge applicator and finishing cloth – it is full of value and perfect for bodywork protection.
