Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kiki Beautiful Job for LIGHT colors only
This is a very nice product and the end results are beautiful but it is only for lighter colors. It does come with a tub of 'light' and a tub of 'dark' so that you can mix to get the appropriate color but the dark is still just 'light'. Unfortuneately, my average tiles are too dark for this kit.
However, it is easy to use and does a fantastic job. Just follow the directions exactly as they are printed on the box. It is quick and easy and not at all messy so I do recommend it if you have a lighter color than I do. Goes on easy, you don't need much. Takes only minutes. Excess wipes off quickly and easily too! This is a very nice kit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JerryY Worked perfectly!
I bought a flip house and the shower arm flange wasn't big enough to cover the cut out for the shower arm. Originally, I was going to find and install a larger flange but decided to give this product a try.
The kit comes with a "light" and "dark" material along with a putty knife and plastic bag to mix colors. For my repair I used the "light' and filled in the hole smoothing it over flush with the tile.
From the photos you can see the hole is covered. Up close you can tell it was patched but the casual observer probably wouldn't notice it. The light color matched well enough that the repair blends and even as the one who fixed it my eye isn't drawn to it. So mission accomplished!
Definitely cheaper than replacing the tile and less cheesy than getting an over sized flange to cover it up.
I did this patch a month prior to this review and so far it still looks great. I didn't seal it or anything and the moisture of the shower hasn't caused any issues.

This product has both "dark" and "light" colors. On our beige travertine tile, even the "dark" appears blazing white. After filling in a crack with "dark" it became an eyesore. This product would have been substantially better if "dark" was at least several shades darker for our application. Even better if it came with some tints for browns and yellows, which our tile also has.
It does seal cracks and pits pretty well, and I found it works best to apply in small amounts wiping over the surface with a minimally damp paper towel. The slight extra moisture thins the product enough to let it penetrate even tiny hairline cracks and pits. Dries rock solid.

How do I start. Well, I purchased a marble vanity top from a small hole in the wall liquidation guy. The reason he had it was there was a crack along the left corner. A granite/marble supplier wanted $100. to fill in the crack. I took my chances that the plumber would install it in one piece. And he did. So I thought I would just put something on top of it to cover it. Then I saw this travertine repair kit. It was like something falling from the heavens. I used it. 2 coats and it looks great! With all the natural veining, you cannot see the crack anymore. I will just seal it and use it forever!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by southernwolverine Very easy to use
I used this on my travertine tile in my den. It comes with to containers on light and one dark about the size of plumbers putty containers. The light was very light and the dark I would have called light myself. The purpose being to mix the two until you get your shade. I just used dark container, went on easy with included putty knife. If you have a lot to do I would advise you to do small areas and then sponge over. I did all I needed to do and had to use scrbby pad to get off of tile surface. Seems to be pretty good fix for pits, holes and cracks. Much easier than replacing tile, if I had it to do over I would not buy travertine tile.

I know custom building products makes some good items, so I was interested in giving this repair kit a try on my new travertine bathroom tiles. Unfortunately when the glass door guys came to do the door installation, I'm pretty sure one of them dropped a tool or something on the tile and caused a minor crack. I'm happy to say that this repair kit made quick work of the problem!

I used this to repair a very long settling crack across my travertine tile bathroom floor in my basement. It applies just like any grout and wipes off easily. It took only minutes. Before I used it, all my guests would point out the crack to me. Now, no one can see it.

This product was a disappointment for us. Probably OK IF your travertine is very light in color.
This kit comes with two small containers of patching material - a "light" and a "dark" which are supposed to be mixed to make a best color match. The colors represented on the box are pretty accurate (I had thought a printing error) - but I would describe them as "light" and "lighter" - almost indistinguishable. Even the "dark" was way too light for our application. Our travertine flooring actually has a pinkish cast overall so this kit was way off. I cheated and added in a trace of red food coloring to the dark material (I was never that good at chemistry); we'll see...
This product would be greatly improved if a container of much darker material was provided - and even better if some coloring material was provided so a much wider range of travertine coloring could be addressed.
