DoDo Juice Diamond White Wax & Red Mist Sealer

I have been hearing rave reviews about DoDo juice diamond white wax and Red Mist sealer. I got myself both products last week and spent the weekend detailing, the wax is so easy to use and once hazed remove like normal wax, after a day of the wax curing i added red mist, this is a seal that gives the paint a wet and glossed look. The one in this post is pre-waxing. The second post will be after waxing and the third post will be after the red mist has been used.

Shouldn't a wax be applied after the sealant?

No the sealant seals in the wax and gives it a bit more longevity

This is the finish after red mist has been applied over the wax, shiny.

You apply a wax after a sealant I'm afraid.
Waxes break down faster than sealants, regardless of whether you seal over the top.

Whatever products you apply they're directly affected by what's underneath them as that's what they're bonded to.
The correct order is: polish, seal, wax.

Looks like Red Mist is different, more of a Quick Detailer rather than a traditional Sealer according to the sales blurb
Dodo Juice Red Mist Protection Detailer - mental durability. insane shine. from the mother of all quick detailers.

Much like AutoBrite's Project 32.

Its a top up to keep the wax sealed in, a quick detailer is generally a wax this is purely a top up and the car has to be absolutely spotless before applying this stuff.

Yes, I'm 100% sure.
Red Mist, however, isn't a true sealant. It's a gloss enhancing detail spray with short term sealing properties. Much like AutoBrite Direct Project 32 it's designed to be used to 'top up' existing protection. The term 'sealant' in its description is misleading.
A true sealant should last several months before reapplication is required, not a week or two.

I've come across several people caught out by this and they've applied P32 and waxed over the top. They're then left wondering why their protection has only lasted a couple of washes. They swap the process and it works perfectly.

Again, incorrect.

Detailing sprays are not generally just waxes. They often contain cleaning agents and gloss enhancers. They remove water spots and add a deep shine. A few offer a little extra protection and top up wax coats.

Looks like they are wording the product wrong if they are saying its sealant :think:

Not described as a sealant on the website at all?

Only mention of sealants is where it's claiming to be "gentle" on the underlying sealant/wax layers...

Is this specifically for white cars?
I'm about to take delivery of a new car in that "colour" and that sounds like its worth a look if it is.

Got it, I was reading the Red Mist Tropical page...

I'll say one thing, that choice of font/typeface on the website is almost enough to put me off the product.. Almost made my eyes bleed trying to read it!!

Not the easiest to read is it


You've linked to two different products (both are described as detailers) which did you use ?

the diamond white is designed for white cars as the other range of dodo waxes can actually tint a white car.

That's another marketing ploy. They really don't 'tint' white cars.
I did a test using Soft 99 Fusso light and dark on various coloured cars and found zero noticeable difference (I used light on black cars and dark on silver, yellow and white). Even Soft99's UK distributor admits there's not difference, it's just marketing two products to get professionals to buy both. Dodo Juice are just doing the same thing.

Amazing how some companies can be so unscrupulous in trying to maximise profits.

Do they though?

"Mr Detailer" might buy two tubs of compound, one for light cars and one for dark... But each tub now lasts twice as long, because it's used half as often...

I would have thought that when you're making a living making cars beautiful, you'll get through enough products that it'll all balance out..

For the majority of us amateurs, we'll buy one product at a time and just use that...

It happens a lot. Most are pretty savvy but a lot get caught out or often cater for their clients. I don't like a lot of Autoglym products but I stock them and use them at a customers request (I do give them alternatives). To prove a point I used Soft99 Fusso Light on my Blackline...
