CARPRO Essence Extreme Gloss Primer- 250 ml.

Item Description:

CARPRO Essence is a revolutionary semi-permanent SiO2-based primer, finishing polish, gloss enhancer, and coating in one. What was once thought to be impossible—the combination of a priming product, polish, and gloss enhancing coating—is now a reality thanks to this cutting edge formula. CARPRO Essence is designed to simplify your detailing routine, without sacrificing on the quality of results achieved.

You want your car to look its best, but sometimes finding time to detail it to perfection, and then keep it looking that way can seem impossible. CARPRO Essence streamlines your detailing process by combining several steps into one while still providing the amazing results you’ve come to expect from CarPro, and it lasts up to a year! Top it off with a coating of Reload or CQuartz, and the hydrophobic properties and dirt resistance will be increased, too.

CARPRO Essence utilizes the same advanced abrasives found in CARPRO Reflect, but in smaller quantities. This allows it to provide just the right amount of cut while still finishing smooth. All the while, CARPRO Essence deposits a durable layer of SiO2 Quartz protection and gloss that will keep your car looking great for up to a year! Not only will CARPRO Essence save you time, it’s also a great value—just five ounces can coat 2-5 cars. If you’re worried about ease of use, don’t be! CARPRO Essence is easy to apply—just like an ordinary polish—and wipes off easily too. Apply it with a microfiber or foam pad using your favorite DA polisher and enjoy the incredible gloss and protection!

  1. Shake well before using.
  2. Prep the surface by stripping any existing waxes or sealants; compound if neccessary
  3. Use a microfiber or foam pad appropriate for your vehicle’s paint. Softer paints will see better results with a microfiber pad
  4. Spread CARPRO Essence evenly over the panel on a low speed
  5. Increase polisher speed to a medium setting and continue polishing.
  6. Wipe away residue with a clean, soft microfiber towel
  7. Immediately clean or soak pads and towels after use with CARPRO Essence
250 ml (8 oz.)

Bought this as a 1 step polish before using cquartz UK. Takes a bit to fully work it, but had no dusting and the outcome left me with a super Shiney 1step job, and mostly filled the scratches I couldn't fully get

  • Makes bad scratches invisible
  • No dusting
  • Takes a while to work

Just enough cut/filler to remove those love marks. Makes a great finishing polish for finicky soft paint and no need to do an ipa wipedown prior to applying a ceramic coating.

My favorite part of Essence is being able to follow up with a coating without doing any IPA wipes.

The cut is just enough for a maintained car to polish out the " love marks" from a year of hand washing, and prep to lay down another coat of a coating.

I use this with microfiber pad for a little more cut, or a white LC pad for light defects. gloss is fantastic, and its super easy to wipe off.

Yes, it is expensive, but you do not use much, and the time savings is worth it IMO.
  • No need for IPA wipe before coating

Used this on a Subaru Forester soft paint it came out glossy and swirls and spider webbing gone. Not able to attack deeper scratches and etched paint.
  • Feels super smooth and looks glossy. Bottle is perfect for hands.
  • Expensive

This probably one of the easiest AIO's you will ever use. I do not know if you want to put it in an AIO category since it lacks most AIO chemical paint cleansers. Let's put it in it's own simply awesome. It' just plain easy to use. You can get a little better cut with a more aggressive pad in my tests but it flat out works. The gloss is insane wipe off a dream and a long term sealant all in one. If your looking for a quick clean up of your paint with great shine and long term durability this is for you
  • Easy to use
  • A fast one step on lightly to moderate paint damage
  • Wipe off is a dream
  • Very little product used to complete a car.
  • $$$
  • Only a one year shelf life so plan your details out.
