We had our summer today, here in Wales, so I ventured outside with my Boot Black cream. It goes on very evenly and smoothly. It is not as pigmented as Saphir cream. I was very impressed by the deep, lustrous finish. Summer is over now. If I could use a turpentine based cream, on a regular basis, I think that this is the one I would choose. Meanwhile, back to the non-turpentine, Woly cream, which doesn't compare well with the Boot Black, although it is OK.
