I would like to try the products and write a review - I must warn you though, I will be honest and not just give some flowery review because I got it for free.

Yes, I would like to try Eco Touch products and write a review.

Was shopping for a waterless car wash product in December. It had been pretty rainy in El Lay and I had to clean up the E91 and E93 a couple of times a week, in between storms.

Narrowed the choices down to Griot's, ONR (not strictly waterless, of course) and Eco Touch. A review of Eco Touch mentioned a couple of things of concern, i.e., it smeared and streaked, wasn't easy to remove, appeared to remove the existing wax, and, despite a claim of an ingredient that made the paint slick and shiny, water didn't bead up on the finish afterwards.

My assumption at the time was the reviewer may have been blaming the Eco Touch for whatever else he had used on his finish before washing with the Eco Touch, but I didn't want to try it on my dime and eventually went with Griot's. Also, I thought maybe the formula has changed since then, as the review was three years ago. And, to be fair, the product is a wash, not a speed wax, so maybe expectations were unreasonably high.

Whoever you choose to do the review on your giveaway, I'm hoping they credibly specifically address the issues that came up in the AutoGeek review.

Hi Wihelm. You are correct, the original waterless product we launched several years ago had some streaking/smearing issues. At that time, 'waterless' products were still in their infancy and we were trying to get a feel for what consumers demanded in regards to performance. A lot has changed since then and many improvements have been made to the formula. I hope this helps and good luck with the contest :)

Got the products.Quite generous for Eco Touch. Big bottles, a lot of stuff. Stuff looks nice. Can't wait to try them, but it's raining here in PA for the next week. My first impression is the containers/packaging look high quality, but will the stuff be any good? I use Menzerna/Wolfgang detail stuff mostly and am not too into ingredients - just what works. Will keep you posted.

Eco Touch Review of Products

First off, all products come with very high quality packaging and the sprayers are great. The sprayers have two settings - spray and mist - which I really like. All the products are smell great, and the scent is very mild. They are natural and seem more like cosmetics than car chemicals. That being said they are not perfect. I received four products. The dashboard product I think is my favorite. It goes on very easy and the results look very close to new car clean. The finish is matte and dry. The tire dressing also goes on very clean and the tires look great. My only issue with the tire product may be longevity. We got a huge storm a few days after I applied it and most of it seem to be gone. However, I am still using it because of ease of application, good looks, and lack of "nasty" feeling on my hands when I'm done.
Waterless car wash is a product I don't really need. I have a BSM 08 M Roadster with no swirls and few scratches. I feel washing the traditional way is the best way to go, and any spray and wipe product can scratch a dirty surface. However, I did try their waterless wash on my car shortly after I washed it and it did work well. Didn't streak at all and cleaned the surface well. I also tried it later on one pretty dirty panel and got good results. So, if waterless car wash is for you, check out the Eco Touch product.
Next was the spray wax. This product I had a little bit of an issue with. I found it a little bit streaky on my BSM BMW paint, that being said, the shine was noticeably better on applied area allowed to not applied area. It just took a little spray detailer on a MF towel to even it out. You likely wont notice this on any color but black.

Still using the EcoTouch products. Have really grown to love the waterless wash. Do they make a leather product?
