I have to say this stuff smells GOOD! So much that it almost smells edible. I guess it also helps that one knows he could be staining his finger with an all natural product instead of one that contains turpentine.
The cleaner/conditioner has a soft 'chewy' kind of texture and spreads easily while the high shine paste is the opposite, resembling hard candlewax (which works well if you just want to scoop up just a tiny bit for a thin coat). The creams are great and gives sufficient shine for a shoe cream.
In all I would say that I am very satisfied with the products and am already looking at purchasing other colors. My only little gripe is that the cleaner and high shine bottles arrived oily, and the wordings on the label eroded once I triednto clean it with some soap. Perhaps a bottle with a tighter screw on lid can be considered?
