POLISHANGEL Glasscoat Cosmic Spritz
Cosmic Spritz has a very high concentration Silica and Titanium Dioxide. Silica produces an extremely hard durable surface that protects against corrosion. Titanium dioxide provides extreme shine and color transparency.
Cosmic Spritz requires only a minimal amount of product to be effective, and leaves no residue on the plastic parts. Can be used as a drying aid.
Cosmic Spritz can be used either as a maintenance topper for coated vehicles, or as a standalone protectant with 4-6 months of durability.
Here at ESOTERIC, we have been secretly testing and evaluating Cosmic Spritz for a year now before finally carrying the POLISHANGEL brand. We have found it to be the perfect maintenance product for coated vehicles, and it works equally well to add a "freshly waxed" look and feel to a vehicle that has no protection. While Cosmic Spritz will last on its own for 4-6 months, we actually like to use it every few washes just to ensure we have a strong layer of protection on the vehicle.
And if you're like us, and like tight water beading and strong hydrophobic properties, then you'll love Cosmic Spritz!
Super-easy to use, great gloss enhancement, and insane water beading...
- Shake well before use
- Spray a very small amount onto the paint surface or into a high quality microfiber towel
- Wipe until product is spread thin and evenly
- Remove any remaining residue with a separate microfiber towel

Although I’m generally somewhat wary to move outside of what I’ve found to work best for me, the Polish Angel product line is intriguing for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is Esoteric’s recommendation of Polish Angel Cosmic Spritz as a coating maintenance product. So, in for a penny, in for a pound, I ordered some Cosmic Spritz to try on our coated vehicles. In brief, it’s a very entertaining, solid and well performing product that lends another option for coating maintenance.
I’ve used this product for about the past month or so on all of our coated vehicles, each of which has a separate and distinct usage pattern. All the cars are coated with Kamikaze Miyabi x 2, Kamikaze ISM x 1, an occasional application of Kamikaze Infinity Wax, maintained with periodic applications of Kamikaze Overcoat, used both as a drying aid after a wash (Platinum Pluffle) and sprayed into a Rag Company Wizard microfiber and applied to dry, clean paint. Having used Overcoat since Summer of 2016, I really didn’t think there was anything out there that could provide the same level of self-cleaning, protection and appearance; I’ve tried about 10-15 other coating booster/maintenance products in that time and nothing approached the performance of Overcoat. It appears, however, that Cosmic Spritz is in the same league as Overcoat, albeit for some different reasons in addition to protection, appearance and self-cleaning characteristics.
Since we were coming out of a harsh, NE Ohio winter, it was a perfect time to try something a bit different as 2 of the 3 cars were going to *need* the winter harshness stripped off of them, which I did with applications of Gyeon Tar and Gyeon Iron after an initial, concentrated blizzard of Gyeon Foam. After this, the coating(s) had regained their ‘as applied’ performance with respect to shine and hydrophobic behavior. Figuring that was about as clean a slate as I was gonna get with respect to clearing off any residual Overcoat from last fall, I applied to all 3 cars at the beginning of what turned out to be one of the most pollen-laden Springs that I can remember.
First up was the wife’s summer toy, 2004 Corvette, non-metallic black paint. This car is garaged/stored from November thru April each year, sees about 7500 miles per year, gets driven in all manner of summer weather (rained on in morning, bakes in sun in afternoon) but is garaged nightly. Coatings were applied in July 2017 and although it likely didn’t really need it, I Gyeon’d the thing like it had been driven all winter long. The visual strengths of Cosmic really became apparent on this car, the non-metallic black paint took on a delightful, classy and high definition sharpness of appearance that made the paint shine like a well polished grand piano. The water behavior of Cosmic when the car is not buried under 10lbs of pollen is among the most entertaining I’ve seen, even topping Overcoat in terms of speed of beads moving off the hood while in motion….something I previously though not possible as Overcoat is *so* good in this respect. This car, going forward, will be maintained strictly with the Cosmic Spritz as it just looks so good; sharper, cleaner and more ‘distinct’ than ever. As the car does see weather/rain, it was a chance to see if morning rain, subsequently baked in afternoon sun, would leave any residual spotting, which it didn’t, even when I didn’t get around to washing it for a few days. So Cosmic is tough enough that I don’t gotta worry about every little thing that hits the paint until I get around to cleaning properly….a big plus ‘cuz sometimes I just don’t feel like washing a car.
Next was the wife’s winter car, a 2016 Aegean Blue Metallic Honda Civic that was coated back in October 2016. At about 7500 miles a year, this car exists primarily as transportation in inclement weather, daily driving in winter and, aside from obviously rainy days, sits outside 24/7 from April until early November. Living on a wooded lot with many oak and maple trees, our driveway and yard gives this car ample opportunity to be stained and generally abused by anything Mother Nature can shake outta the trees and atmosphere. Leaves and such can sometimes sit on this car for a bit, get rained on and then sit for a bit longer until I finally get around to washing it. The sharpness of Cosmic seemed to ‘burn thru’ any light dirt layer on the surface, leaving the car looking very good despite my occasional inattention to its basic maintenance. The Cosmic did require a bit more ‘effort’ (i.e. pressure) on the wash mitt when I did get around to washing it but, to be fair, this is also the least maintained car in our home…it spends most of its time serving as a debris-catcher for anything that is floating around the neighborhood, including the occasional sticky vapor residue that seems to arise from neighbors who must be cooking maple syrup over an open fire a few days of the week. Or something to that effect…it’s weird. Anyway, once cleaned, the Cosmic did indeed protect the paint and underlying coating from anything untoward happening to it but water performance did fall off a bit as the paint gathered more contaminants….and yet somehow still looked great from 5 feet away. Odd, but cool nonetheless. Cosmic has a little less ‘pop’ on the metallic paint but still provides an excellent glow and sharpness.
Lastly was my daily driver, a black (with a hint of metallic) 2017 Honda Accord Coupe. After buying this car new in June 2017, it has accumulated 22k hard, mostly freeway miles. While garaged every night all year round, it makes a 85-100mile daily commute on 4 of the worst freeways in the NE Ohio area. The coating was applied around August of 2017 and, in and of itself, has held up tremendously, couldn’t ask for more. In retrospect, given the harsh freeway environment (salt, brine and chemical de-icer in the winter, construction zones everywhere the rest of the year) it would have been a great candidate for PPF but, alas, that ship has sailed for the time being. Anyway, the Cosmic gave a great higher-gloss look to the paint in comparison to the maintenance product I had been using previously (Overcoat). The self-cleaning fell off a bit more quickly given the vehicles’ usage but again, the sharper gloss of the Cosmic seemed to make itself obvious despite accumulated road and natural grime. While I really like Cosmic on this car as well, I’ll probably return to Overcoat given the abuse this paint takes; I think Overcoat is just a bit tougher with respect to self-cleaning on a somewhat contaminated surface. It’ll still get a shot of Cosmic on occasion as summer progresses as it’s a nice, subtle alteration of appearance that is always welcome.
All in all, Cosmic is a worthy contender (to me) for a booster/maintenance product. It’s incredibly easy to use, gives a great initial pop to the paint that increases a bit over 24hrs and has amazing water behavior, which is always fun to watch on an otherwise dull commute. Also, it has a hint of a Crayola Crayon scent to it that is oddly enjoyable to me; maybe I’m still trapped in elementary school where having the 64-crayon box w/ built in sharpener made you King of the Hill when the drawing paper came out. It’s a sharper look than Overcoat, especially the definition it gives to non-metallic paint, lending a brilliance to the surface as opposed to a deeper, warmer look. A little goes a very long way as well. It doesn’t apply quite as well when used as a drying aid as much as Overcoat (it’s kinda, I dunno…’thicker’?) but is still easily used in that capacity as well. It’s got some great slickness which makes it more fun to use on a dry surface though, which is sometimes satisfying in and of itself. It’s not a question of whether it’s better than Overcoat, but rather it’s different in all the good ways. Definitely glad I took a leap and stepped outside of what had become the norm for me; while it won’t replace Overcoat on my shelf, it will certainly sit next to it and compliment it going forward. Choice (especially an extremely effective choice) is always a plus and with Cosmic, I now have a verifiable and suitable choice for those times I want something equally as good but just a bit different.
I have three coated vehicles. I purchased the Kamikaze OverCoat last month liked it but it was missing something. So I bought the Polish Angel Cosmic Spritz. Wow. It’s nice a thick. I sprayed it into a microfiber, 2 sprays per panel. It blew me away. Worked in easy and left my F150 looking wet. Amazing stuff!!
If Todd is using this product then I know it's a sure shot.
He literally puts the time and passion into all of his products
That he promotes and sale.. Been a believer and proud to support
Whatever product he is putting on the shelf
A while back I was casually drinking my morning coffee and watching the latest paint correction videos online. I came across Esoteric's video on Cosmic Spritz. Cosmic What? Exactly. Never heard of it. I've been using another high end final glass coat which I am quite happy with already--I don't need another one. In addition, I sure don't need to play guinea pig for a new product at this price point.
Come to find out, Esoteric has been using this product in their shop for quite some time. They have been putting Cosmic Spritz to the test on their Corvette and have recently been offering it to their clients. (I take a more serious sip of my morning coffee and sit up in my chair...) Cosmic Spritz has the "Esoteric seal of approval?" Fine. I'll bite. I buy a bottle...
The best way I can describe the application of Cosmic Spritz is "slick, quick, and easy to use." I completely understand what Todd Cooperider was talking about in the video when he refers to it's application. Cosmic Spritz is amazingly easy to use. A couple of times during the application I actually caught myself double checking the application area to make sure some of the product actually went on the car! I've never felt another product apply the way Cosmic Spritz applies to a car.
However in the back of my mind I kept wondering if a product so easy to use would be a bit too delicate? Well, when I washed the car for the first time--I just giggled. Literally giggled. Cosmic Spritz holds it's own. See for yourself. The stuff is amazing.
This is A top notch product! I prefer to use the dry application after washing /drying the vehicle. Spray /wipe then buff off with thick or new microfiber and you're all set. Literally leaves a glass like shine.
