Posting on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK, the mum explained: "[I was] thinking about having my drive re-surfaced before lockdown, then saw a post about [this] tarmac restorer."
Thought it worth a try, the woman purchased ordered a tub of TarmaSeal's black restorer online and was amazed by the results.
Sharing impressive before-and-after photos, the woman's driveway was worn-down and stained before she used the £120 product.
The mum simply used a paint roller to apply the product directly onto the drive and says it's "looks like new again!"
Although £120 for a restorer may sound like a lot, the Home Advice Guide reports that it can cost upwards of £1,500 to re-tarmac driveways in the UK.
Thrilled with her neat new drive, she added: "Absolutely made up for a fraction of the cost of it re surfaced!"
According to the product description, the tarmac restorer covers "unsightly cement & oil stains or marks" and offers "long-term protection".
What's more, a five litre bottle will only set you back £40 while you can also order a small sample for just £3.95.

One replied: "Looks brilliant!!"
"This stuff is amazing," another gushed. "We did our drive with it!"
"Come up a treat," a third wrote. "Well done!"
