Turtle Wax - Headlight Lens Restorer: Review

I know there are always questions as to what works and what doesn't. I bought this kit at Wal-mart for $8.47. I thought I would give it a try. It worked as promised for me. Granted my hazing wasn't to deep, it was obvious it was present, but only certain parts of the lens were yellowed.

i'm not going to go into detail as to the steps followed, they were on the box, and can be found here:

i spent a little extra time on each lens with each pad. i notice that the pads lost their gritty-ness after one use, so only use one side at a time with each lens.

The Lens Clarifying Compound seems to be a light abrasive as well as a polisher/wax. I used generous amounts of it after i used the pads since i wasn't going to use it on any other car anytime soon. you could probably just use this on lenses that aren't too far gone and it would work 'ok'.

If you're doing both head lights, do the whole process minus the application of the sealant on both lenses. There is only one sealant pouch and wipe, and i fear that taking 15 minutes to clean/polish the second lens would be too long to leave the sealant wipe exposed to the air and essentially evaporating whatever it is that 'seals'. Do steps 1-6 for both lenses and then do step 7 on both, within seconds of each other.

hope this helps when deciding what product to use when your headlights/fog light start oxidizing and yellow-ing.
