One question, where is the at care stuff in Lowes at? I have never seen it! Maybe because I have never really looked before.

It's right by the cleaners/detergents/air fresheners.

That's about what it's worth. Anything over a dollar would be a ripoff.
Stick with Collinite 845 or 476s if you want an excellent LSP for cheap.

The car care stuff is usually with the other household cleaners - the laundry detergents, dish soaps, windex, etc.

What is "LSP" and what is "cheap"?

This product is fine (used it on my new Edge and once for a quick wax on my GT-R).

For $1.00...its a really good find.

LSP stands for Last Step Product (wax or sealant). Wax is not a polish.

This stuff is probably fine if you don't care about the longevity of the wax. But it's just $1 so who cares.

Here is a message from Turtle that I found in an Amazon review:
The ICE product does contain a small amount of carnauba wax, however the majority is a blend of synthetic waxes.

The terms "wax" and "polish" are virtually interchangeable these days, but going by traditional definitions a polish is a product that contains a cutting agent that removes oxidised paint while a wax is a protective layer over the painted surface.

Therefore, by traditional standards, ICE Polish is actually a wax as it contains no cutting agent and sits on the painted finish to form asmooth layer/shine. That is why ICE Polish is suited better to newer cars or cars with newer paint finishes.

Older painted surfaces would need to be prepped with products such as ICE Liquid Clay Bar or Scratch and Swirl before using ICE Polish.

The ICE Detailer was designed to refresh the original shine of the polish after washing to obtain optimal results. It does not need to be used.

ICE Polish is designed to make water bead off it, like all other good polishes. This is from the smooth finish, which is the reason for the high shine level. I have never heard of this as being a negative before.

One of the people in the office drives a blue car and they use the Ice Paste and have never had an issue with bad water spotting.

To summarise, ICE does leave a wax layer to protect your paint surface. It is the hardest polish in our range, just beating F21 Paste and Super Hard Shell Paste.

In relation to layering, there is no correct answer here as the more effort you put in, the better the result. There is no limit to the number of layers, the more layers that go on, the deeper the finish. Serious car enthusiasts have been known to put 12-15 layers on thier cars. However you need a high quality paint job to get the best results from the layering effort.

car polish is supposed to remove scratches and surface contaminants...basically it is a deep cleaning for your paint. this ICE product is kind of mis-named in that regard. it performs more like a synthetic wax. you can't "layer" polish...that serves no purpose. however, you most definitely can layer wax to add depth and shine.

for $5 it wouldn't be a bad product (for $10+ it would be kind of a rip compared to other waxes), but for $1 it is an absolute steal. hand wash + a layer or 2 of this stuff and you'll be MUCH better off than running your vehicle through an automated wash.

there are certainly better boutique care car products out there (my arsenal of supplies can attest to that), but NOTHING could even come close to the bang for your buck that you would get if you score this ICE for a $1

I don't know about the liquid stuff, but the ice paste I put that on my daily driver and it's almost been a year and it still water still beads up on it. Amazing stuff, now my summer weekend cars I prefer to wax in more often so I use traditional waxes.
