Wet look stone sealer

Just got finished a retaining wall and want to put a sealer on to give it that "wet" look,it looks a thousand times better by just hosing it off and I want to get as close to that as possible.

Any specific brand recommendations? Are they all pretty much the same or is there a quality difference with some,price is no issue I want the best one for that look.

Thanks in advance.

prices are about the same. you spend money on block not sealer. sealing a wall is not a common practice FYI.

On pavers we use techniseal make sure you use a foam paint prush a roller won't work for that type of application.

My recomendation is not to seal it.

You will be sealing it at the least every year. Block is very porous and it will suck up that sealer.
