Concrete Crack Filler

I'm planning on filling the cracks in my concrete driveway and where the concrete driveway meet the concrete foundation. What does everyone recommend as far as concrete filling material?

I plan on wire brushing the cracks and then power washing the cracks to remove debris. Possibly adding sand in the more deeper cracks. These are the two products that seem to have been recommended in other posts.

do it like a pro would,,, ' chase ' the crks w/ 4" x 3/8" diamond blade to 1/2" depth,,, clean well w/wire brush on the 4" grinder,,, air blow,,, apply bond breaker closed-cell backer rod OR 1/4" tape,,, seal w/100% silicone,,, that's what we do on conc hgwys,,, same thing where the d/w meets the fnd

caution - sand is cheap BUT it is NOT compressible
