2. Good Things About The Product

So, let’s start with the good things about O’Neill’s wetsuit cleaner and conditioner…

  • It’s the cheapest wetsuit cleaner / shampoo I’ve bought for the size (250ml)
  • It cleans a wetsuit really well
  • The instructions are real easy to follow
  • Lasts the longest out of the wetsuit cleaners / shampoo’s I’ve used


3. Not So Good Things About The Product

  • Doesn’t add any nice smells to the wetsuit like other shampoo’s
  • Might be specific to my bottle, but the top cracked and started leak




4. Would I Recommend This Product?

So, would I recommend O’Neill’s wetsuit cleaner and conditioner? In short, yes.

Firstly, O’Neill’s wetsuit cleaner and conditioner did a great job of cleaning my wetsuit. This is obviously the only reason people buy wetsuit shampoos, so this can’t go overlooked.

Secondly, the consistency of the shampoo is thicker than other wetsuit cleaners. This means it lasts lot longer than other wetsuit shampoo’s out there. A 250ml bottle is the usual size for these things and it was easy to get five washes from a full bottle.

Last but not least, it managed to do all of the above at the cheapest price.

In short, this is a solid wetsuit cleaning choice. It’s great value, consistent and able to last more than four uses.
