SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit Review

Keeping headlights clean not only makes your car look better but it’s safer. Because when cars headlights become dirty and full of  oxidation they look clouded, dull, hazy and yellow which gives off less light making the distance they light up not as far. My Cadillac CTS headlights became very dirty and the distance of light they gave off was just awful. Thanks to SYLVANIA for sending over their Headlight Restoration Kit and SilverStar zXe Headlights free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.

I honestly couldn’t wait to try the Headlight Restoration Kit from SYLVANIA. This kit is designed to remove thousands of miles of damage off of headlights and restore the lenses. In return give them a durable like-new look and performance. This is an easy to use do-it-yourself kit that will help reduce headlight glare by up to 70 percent and remove the hazy yellow appearance on lenses.

This was so easy to do and I didn’t even need my husbands help but he wanted to join in on the fun. We followed each step carefully and completed the restoration in about 45 minutes. Don’t get me wrong this will require a little bit of elbow grease, but if you do it right the first time you should be pretty pleased with the results. I am 101% satisfied with the SYLVANIA  Headlight Restoration Kit. You will need absolutely no tools!

I wasn’t sure at first if it would work because we tried every home remedy we could find rather than spending money on an expensive restoration kit. However little did I know that SYLVANIA’S kit is only $19.99!

Below is a photo of some of the steps we took to do the restoration. I am glad my husband helped because it started to get dark and I was running out of time.

We were utterly amazed by the wonderful job the restoration kit did. I am not even kidding you our headlights look like they are brand new again! This is amazing to me it really is. All those times I thought about taking my car to the shop and paying $100 to have them restored. Ha you can do it for $19.99 by yourself! Check the amazing job the SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit did in my before and after pictures below!

Now that the restoration is done it’s said to give more than 3x the light on the road then I was getting when they were dirty and up to 70% glare reduction. I noticed a difference immediately.

Dirty headlights is a major safety concern for you, your family and other drivers! I highly recommend the SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit. Nothing beats the clarity and shine of headlight lenses on a brand-new car.

SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit will make your lenses clearer, and your headlights will shine brighter, and they will better illuminate the road ahead. Keeping you safer while driving at night. And, the newer your car looks, the more it’s worth. Restoring your headlight lenses increases the value of your car.

No sense in just restoring just the headlight lenses why not get a new set of headlights. SYLVANIA has you covered for that too. We replaced ours after the restoration with a pair of SilverStar zXes.


SilverStar zXes halogen headlights have an HID attitude and are Xenon fueled and 100% street legal. They also feature a nanotechnology infused coating system that enabled SYLVANIA engineers to optimize the color of light output. And a mirror tip  which features precious metals.

These lights give our car a crisp illumination and the lights are noticeably whiter than standard halogen bulbs. As you drive at night you will right away notice a difference. They have a cool cobalt blue coating combined with xenon halogen gas that generates a color temperature that rivals HID headlights.
Key Features:

  • Attitude of HID lights
  • 100% street legal and DOT approved
  • Whitest SYLVANIA SilverStar halogen
  • Proprietary xenon halogen gas technology
  • Jewel-like appearance

I know I said this once already, but if your headlights are dirty I highly recommend you get the SYLVANIA Headlight Restoration Kit and SilverStar zXe Headlights. This will be well worth the money spent and if done correctly you will be more than satisfied. I can’t say enough about what a wonderful job it did for our headlights.

These products can be purchased at local auto parts stores across the US and here on
