British brand Bouncer’s burst onto the detailing scene over a decade ago with their small batch, hand crafted show waxes. In this Bouncers Bead Juice review, we take a look at Bouncers Bead Juice spray on rinse off sealant. This premium exterior protection sealant is simple to use and Bouncer’s Wax claim it can last for up to 4 months!
Bouncer’s Wax Bead Juice Spray Sealant Product Description
Bead Juice by Bouncer’s is a ready to use, spray on rinse off sealant and exterior surface protectant. Bead Juice is safe to use on top of any other polymer or ceramic coatings as well as existing layers of wax.

Bead Juice boosts gloss and shine on your paintwork and helps to keep your car protected and looking cleaner for longer. Whether you apply the product wet or dry, you can expect durability of around 12 to 16 weeks.
About the Bouncer’s Wax Brand
The Bouncers Wax brand was born in 2011. Founder Jay Sultan initially began blending and producing traditional show waxes – the first such product being ‘22’. These waxes were licensed and marketed by Dodo Juice, first reaching a European, and later a Global audience.
The Bouncer’s range of unique waxes grew, with each one sporting a memorable name, like ‘Satsuma Rock’, ‘Sherbet Fizz’ and ‘Vanilla Ice’. Next came the wax safe car shampoo ‘Slick Mick’ and the award nominated Quick Detailer ‘Done & Dusted’. Specialist and limited edition waxes like Bouncer’s Fortify Winter Wax were also added along with SiO2 infused blends. The product range has grown and now covers all aspects of car care and car detailing.
Each product in the Bouncers detailing range is hand blended and hand poured in the UK with a constant, laser like focus on quality control. Bouncer’s offer their high performance, premium products throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and the USA.
How to Use Bouncer’s Bead Juice
Firstly, you need to wash your car. For a complete step-by-step guide on how to safely wash your car using the two bucket method, check out our PRO Detailer in-depth guide.
Bouncer’s Bead Juice is a Last Stage Protection (LSP) product but unlike a regular Spray Sealant, Quick Detailer Spray (QDS), or Wax which you apply then buff off with a microfiber, Bead Juice is sold as a ‘spray on and rinse off’ product.
That said, you can apply Bouncers Bead Juice to both wet or dry surfaces and we’ll explain both application methods.
Before using Bouncer’s Bead Juice, gently shake the bottle to mix the chemicals. Liquid detailing products can suffer from chemical separation if left to stand for a period of time. Mixing the chemicals will help you to achieve the best results when using the product.
Bouncers Bead Juice is typically applied to a wet car, one panel at a time, then rinsed off with a pressure washer. It is the high pressure rinse water which activates the sealant helping it spread and chemically bond to the vehicle’s paint and trim surfaces.
If you follow our step-by-step guide on how to safely wash your car, complete the safe wash process through step 7, then apply Bouncer’s Bead Juice. Finally, dry your vehicle as normal and apply tire dressing if required.
We recommend that Bouncer’s Bead Juice is only ever used on wet, cool panels. Never use the product in strong, direct sunlight or Bouncer’s Bead Juice may cause problems. If you live in a warm or hot climate and plan to use this product, thoroughly rinse the vehicle immediately before application, work in sections, one panel at a time, from top to bottom, rising immediately after application.
To apply Bouncers Bead Juice on a dry panel, spray a very light mist onto a single panel. Spread the product over the entire panel using clean, soft microfiber towel. Flip the towel over to a dry side and buff again if necessary. There is no need to rinse the car when using this application method.
Ease of Application of Bouncer’s Bead Juice
Bead Juice is super easy to apply to any vehicle. When applying to a wet car, work one panel at a time, mist two or three sprays onto each section. Following application, immediately rinse the product using your pressure washer. As the high pressure water hits the panel, the Bead Juice will momentarily ‘flash’ as it activates.
The water behaviour on the treated panel will instantly change, becoming extremely hydrophobic. Water will be repelled from the panel and the little that remains will bead dramatically, making drying with a towel or warm air car dryer, a super simple task.
Once the entire vehicle has been treated with Bead Juice and rinsed, as an extra precaution, re-rinse the whole vehicle one final time. This will ensure that no product is able to dry on the bodywork, thus avoiding any unsightly chemical residue.
Benefits of Using Bouncer’s Bead Juice
Not only does Bead Juice add insane levels of hydrophobicity, but this spray on wash off car sealant also adds gloss. Paintwork, glass, wheels and trim can all benefit from high levels of long-lasting nano tech protection.
Bouncer’s Bead Juice also increases slickness to the touch. Once fully dry, gently run the back of your clean hand across the treated paintwork. You can actually feel the improvement in the surface gloss and slickness.
Bouncer’s Bead Juice repels water, dirt and airborne contamination. Rain water alone is able to remove dirt and contaminants from treated areas of your vehicle.
The main selling point of Bead Juice is its ease of use. This is an awesome product to use in colder and more temperate climates, especially during winter months. When it’s cold outside and you just want to get your car cleaned and protected, Bouncer’s Bead Juice is our go-to spray on rinse off sealant.
After carefully cleaning your car, being able to add instant, long-lasting protection with just a few sprays and a final rinse is a major selling point.
Finally, as you’d expect from a Bouncer’s Wax product, you can use Bouncer’s Bead Juice on top of ceramic coatings, other forms of protection and it is a 100% wax safe product.
How Long Does Bouncer’s Bead Juice Last?
Bouncer’s Bead Juice is an extremely durable spray and rinse paint sealant, capable of withstanding many wash cycles over a number of months. Bouncer’s claim that Bead Juice can last for up to 16 weeks/4 months in total.
Our own use of this product and the testing that we’ve conducted, would suggest that this claim is conservative. In our experience, when used on a low mileage car, which is given regular, careful maintenance washes, we’ve seen Bead Juice last even longer! It’s important to remember that the durability of any product can vary depending on useage.
Value for Money of Bouncer’s Bead Juice
Considering that this spray sealant can protect your car for up to 4 months, it represents excellent value for money. The cost of application (based on 50ml of product) is around $1.40 per application. It is available in both 500ml ($13.99) and 1000ml ($21.99) trigger spray bottles, with Bouncers Bead Juice 5L ($51.99) bulk containers also offered by some authorised resellers.
Bouncer’s Wax Packaging
The Bouncer’s Wax brand identity is certainly unique. Despite using a regular, off the shelf bottle design, their labelling is unmistakable. Personally, I have always felt that their branding, design and labels haven’t matched the quality of the product. Yes, the instructions, information and warnings are clear. But they lack a quality and professionalism of rival brands with inferior products.
The trigger sprays are very high quality, offering an infinitely adjustable mist, spray or stream and fully closed setting. These triggers have a good draw and consistent spray output throughout the spray cycle.
Bouncer’s Wax are known throughout the detailing community for their innovative, high quality waxes, quick detailers and spray on rinse off sealants.
Spray on rinse off sealant type products are often used at the end of each maintenance wash to ‘top-up’ protection. Not so with Bouncer’s Bead Juice as one application can protect your car for 3 to 4 months!
Bouncer’s Bead Juice is extremely easy to use and extremely effective. We think it’s one of the best Bouncer’s products that we’ve tested. Not only that, but we think it’s one on the best spray on rinse off sealant products that we’ve ever tested!
