How I would describe Sirius & Helios car wax
Both Sirius & Helios are premium handmade carnauba based waxes suitable for all paint types and colours that require a protective high gloss finish. They combine a high content of #1 grade Brazilian carnauba wax and polymers specially engineered and raw materials are soured globally to deliver incredible wetness and depth of shine with superb durability and protection. Sirius & Helios can be used as a final wax or as a topping over any other BMD or branded wax.

What I think to Sirius &Helios
Unscrewing both jars, you are pleasantly greeted by the scents of Candy Floss in Helios and Kiwi and Lime in Sirius. Any true professional detailer will know it’s not totally necessary to have a wax which smells nice, but it definitely makes working with them more enjoyable and these two won’t ever disappoint. Using the BMD applicator and running it across the top of the waxes, you will see that Sirius & Helios are both very soft and have a grainy texture, but both are so soft they almost melt onto the pad (don’t worry about the grainy effect, this is totally normal for hi-end, hi-carnauba % waxes, Swissvax and Zymol waxes are good examples of this).
As with all Black Magic Detail waxes, very little is needed to cover a decent-sized area as they spread nicely. It helps if you do as BMD recommend and carry out a little prep work beforehand with BMD pre-wax cleaner fluid.
Following the instructions I found both Sirius & Helios spread well and give an even coat. As per the instructions I left both Sirius & Helios to cure for 10 minutes before removing them from two different cars. Removal with a soft microfibre cloth was easy and required very little effort, possibly due to the use of polymers in the ingredients.
My verdict 10/10
Both Sirius & Helios gave a lovely deep shine to the paint work, as BMD promises. The metallic popped out with both waxes, and the paint took on a sleek and slippery look – especially excellent at night under street lamps. I’ve never seen better beading from one coat of Sirius & Helios but applying couple of layers of Sirius & Helios gives me far better results than just one application so I’d recommend doing that if you feel its needed. BMD say both Sirius & Helios waxes will last from 2 to 4 months if used in conjunction with the BMD Shampoo range which I highly recommend.
Priced at £25.00 each for a sample pot of Sirius & Helios, the BMD Sirius & Helios waxes are priced competitively in today’s market. Taking into account the high quality finish, longevity and sheer amount you get I felt it’s well worth the cost, as theoretically a sample jar of each could last you over a year!
