If the wax "balls up" on the applicator pad then it's probably dead. The wax should be hard though and will have a buttery/oily feel to it.

My 50/50 looks like it has cracks and is really really old ........ that's how it should look. As long as it spreads onto the paint without marring it's still in good shape.
