I think there are alot of other products that work like that also right? Have been using meg last touch for years to lubricate the paint while drying it. Also has polymers in it to add alittle bit more protection while drying the car.

not really, those are spray waxes/quick detailers which also came with the kit but the hydrate is something totally different. I tried it out yesterday. 2 microfiber towels, one normal, one i sprayed 1-2 shots of hydrate, wipe car panel. The towel without hydrate left some streaks of water, the towel with hydrate, no water left after wiping, of course some of the water went into the towel but also looked like macham some of the water absorbed into the paint or something after wiping with the towel with hydrate.

I'm really really impressed with this SKIN product. I'm been thru Sonax, Meguiars, Mother's, Autoglym... but this one's da bomb. I combo-ed it with a layer of dodo-juice on top. Quite amazed. i will try it out again this weekend and hopefully take some pics.

I've never used spray waxes/quick detailers the way you do so i can't compare. Actually i very rarely use those as i just do a normal waxing instead whenever i wash the car. I usually only use those when getting rid of bird poop outside or when clay bar-ing the car

Just got some extra info off the creator of the product on the difference between hydrate / quick detailer-spray waxes

The difference between spray wax and Hydrate is HUGE.

1) There is more lubrication than spray wax. (Need more lube to safely dry the paint)

2) Hydrate is Hydrophobic (which make the water move off the paint better)

3) Hydrate leaves behind a thicker layer of protection (after the drying process) that actually last until the next wash.

There is really a huge difference.

My counterpart pass some to me to try before..not sure if it is the same ammo cos it came without labels..the concept of this is very similar to those no rinse wash with more lubricant to minimise scratches during drying....it contains some polymer to give it a little protection..i would say very similar to a quick detail imo..the dry towel do play a part..

actually its very different from those no-rinse washes. i hate those things.
i tried using the spray wax method to dry off the car, its not as slick when wiping as the Hydrate. Maybe one day i can show u guys the difference.

For point 1 and 2 many other quick detailers also have the same qualities/ claim to have the same qualities. The megs last touch I use IMO also have lots of lubrication and is definitely hydrophobic.

As for the third point I know meg's last touch does leave a layer of protection as well and it usually lasts for around 1 month if I don't wash the car. But I got no way of measuring how thick it is.

I'm just posting what little info i have on the product. I have used alot of products so far in the years i wash my car, autoglym, sonax, meguiars, mother's, zurtle, some other funny japanese brands... etc... and to me, this is the best i have come across (In addition to my dodojuice wax) and to me, there is a difference. Enough difference that after using it, i keep backing away from the car just to look at it from odd angles and see how the paintwork catches the light.

If you like Meg's and it works for you, then is cool. Just sharing what i have. Not like i'm selling it.

I might try to do a bulk purchase if i can generate enough interest, also so that i can buy for my own future use without having to incur the shipping charges.

OK! As promised, some pics i just took.
But first, some background info, the car in question, is a used 5 year old 1 series. As far i can tell, no special grooming done prior to our ownership. Or at least, nothing recent. And i'm not a professional groomer, just a weekend car washing freak. No DA used, all detailing products applied by hand.

Washing history, i washed last week, i used a hose and foam gun to wash the car. Using the foam gun on one hand and a wash mitt on the other working together.
Atfter the wash, soaped up the car and clayed it. Dried off with a microfiber towel after. Dodojuice limeprime pre-wax cleaner was next and after that i applied AMMO skin.
After Ammo skin, i used Dodojuice Purple haze to finish it off. Mid-week, i rinsed the car down with water and wiped it dry using AMMO Hydrate.

Today i washed it with the foam gun and wash mitt, dried it up using AMMO Hydrate and after that, used another layer of AMMO Skin on top to finish it off.

Stuff used today:
2 buckets
2 wash mitts
1 hose (now leaking *arrrgh* )
1 foam gun
1 sponge applicator
AMMO foam wash
AMMO Hydrate
AMMO Skin


Here's the pictures. Taken not in the best conditions as sky was getting dark and it poured right after i got back into the car after the last shot. :(
The rain did allow me to see how the water just beaded off the car though.




In the basement carpark before i went out. Not the best lighting, so i drove it out.


Better lighting but sky was still overcast and threatening to rain






Still managed to catch what little sunlight there was. I'm very very happy with the results.


Cloudy background




More bonnet shots :)


Closeup of bonnet


Truck going by








Side views.


Roof shot




More roof shots.


Immediately after that last roof shot, i go into the car and this happened. So back home i went. The wash-car curse strikes again



To say i'm happy is an understatement, the results for the $$$ spent is really really good. Granted it might not match up to the big boy grooming centres but for a hobbyist without access to any electrical tools, i'm very very pleased with the outcome. I'm not going to say you must buy this, and you might be using other products that work for you and give you a similar or better shine which is cool. But so far, for me, this is tops. :)



So, if i do a bulk purchase, will anyone be interested?
