For Sale: All Natural, Non-Toxic, Shoe Polish - Page 5

post #61 of 73

Will check out the product soon enough!

post #62 of 73
Glenjay: I saw you mentioning it previously, and I definitely think it would be a good idea to make a series of polish in the same colors as the cream. I, and I know many others, use the polish for burnishing and soft antiquing, and I don't think that I ever will use neutral polish regularly. I'm soon going to be able to try your products out, looking forward to see how they are in reality!

Very interesting and great idea! I just recently found out about the toxicity of shoe polish and came across this in my research on the matter.  I'll definitely look into your polishes if they are still on the market!

Excellent.  I think I've researched it enough to find that knowledgeable people highly recommend it.  I will be purchasing some soon! (hopefully sooner rather than later as I still have a lot of other products left!#%$).

Well I couldn't resist and quickly pulled the trigger.  I was very happy this morning to find that the shipping was super fast! Thanks Glen!

 

I did want to ask you, having never seen or used this polish before, is this how the consistency of the polishes should look?  The High Shine paste bottle cap was ajar when I un-packaged it.  When I completely removed the cap I could see that the paste began to "sweat" a little.  I just want to be sure it hasn't dried out or anything.

 

Also, as beautiful as the glass bottle presentation is, as mentioned in an earlier post, the Cleaner Conditioner bottle cap managed to leak even through the extra tape on it, leaving a rather sticky mess.  It appears it was filled generously so it's not really a big deal if some leaked out.  Though it did leave quite a sticky mess even after cleaning it up a bit (Make sure to wash your hands very well before touching your phone screen!).  Perhaps a better cap seal, or even a plastic squeeze bottle for the Conditioner would be a good idea.

 

Anyhow, I can't wait to try it out!  Thanks for making such a great product available!  Now I just have to see how my shoes like it. :cheers:

Got my glenkaren shoe care products and went to work on a pair of C&J's

 

Apologies for the iPhone quality photos and my average shoe shine skills.

 

Very happy with the products, except the cap of the conditioner/cleaner came a bit loose and some spilt out but I can live with that.

Just got in my shipment of cleaner/conditioner and brown polish. I must say very very pleased with everything. Aside from wanting to eat it, everything worked out exquisitely well! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have to say that I have always found shoe polishing to be a relaxing, therapeutic, and enjoyable ritual/experience.  However, using GlenKaren polishes to shine your shoes is just an absolute pleasure and self-indulgence!  And the results are astonishing to boot! They are the best set of polishes I have used to date.  Thank you for a great product! :bigstar::thumbs-up:

Would love if there were a line of pigmented waxes available. Also would like to add that the cleaner/conditioner did a great job of cleaning off some residue from some bad Sydney rain recently

Just ordered the high shine after reading reviews of achieving mirror shine with minimal buffing. Will use with Lexol conditioner until that runs out and then switch to the GK conditioner :)

 

Thanks, Glen!

If anyone has started using the waterproof polish, I would love to hear some reviews.
