Tried to leave a detailed review. It has not appeared yet, is there censorship on highlighting that this product does not do what it says on the flimsy plastic tub?
Waste of time

All sanding and preparation work done and then some, but the applicator in this product is I think what’s at fault. It’s fragile and doesn’t leave a smooth finish as described on the tin. We’ve ended up with streaky floors and patchiness. I then attempted to sand between coats only to find that a very light sand with 240 grit went straight through to the wood on some parts, no wonder it was patchy. At least it should be easy to remove.
To balance the review, the colour was great and exactly what we were after but in summary I think this is just a gimmick to claw a little bit of money out of people who don’t have time to do it properly. Guilty, I’ve learnt my lesson.

Have previously used this product which lasted several years and was again very pleased with the outcome on my floors.
A gimmicky product!

The varnish drys too quickly and becomes very tacky before you have time to work it along the grain of the wood. The paint pad doesn't work very well and starts to disintegrate after a period of time plus the pole is unstable. Take my advice take your time and methodically apply this varnish with a good quality brush for a good result!
Ok in the end- but I expected more than just ok.

Firstly I think the packaging is poorly designed. Why have the applicator in a tub that sits in the varnish so it drips everywhere when you remove it - mad! Granted it warns you abou this on the tin , but really??!!
All prep work was carried out to the letter. Then the fun began.....
My parquet floor in the hall is a little uneven in places through wear and tear, as it has been in the house since it was built in the 50s. This presented me with some difficulty as the applicator pad couldn't cope with the changes in levels so I had to resort to my hands and knees and a brush anyway.
The first two coats went on well and the floor was looking good. Then I went out and bought the specific grade of sandpaper recommended and lightly sanded it ready for the final coat. Trust me, I am by no means heavy handed, but it left my floor really patchy - and not just on the uneven areas. I had to go round with a brush and touch up the lighter areas and then wait for that to dry before adding the final coat, adding an extra 3 hours to the job. The final outcome is ok but I think I can still see the patches, but this may just be me since I know they were there - my husband says it is fine.
As the same flooring runs from my hall through to the lounge and dining room the plan was to strip and revarnish that too. I now have the dilemma of whether to varnish it or put down a carpet. Sadly after this experience I think the carpet may win ....
