A 5 star review for a 5 star product. Seriously, extremely happy with the results I got using pure gold on our solid Canadian Maple bench tops. Simon Gilboy gave me the head's up, a little goes a long way. The packaging was fabulous, quite important when it is travelling half way around the world to Australia. Super product, highly recommended. Great service and quick response time given via FB page when asking product questions, again, thank you Simon.
Amazing product, was ready to throw away my oak coffee table, it had gone white with wear. However, I followed instructions and hence, I had a new looking table. Would advise anyone to try . You get what you pay for. It seems expensive at first glance but how much would a new piece of furniture cost.x
I’m very pleased with the transformation achieved on my battered corner cupboard.Gorgeous colour and lustre. Thanks so much. JMH
I purchased this product directly from the Gilboy website. As soon as I received the package, I realized the extraordinary quality of the service. The Gilboy company works very seriously and takes care of its customers. I'm glad I made this purchase. I have already started using bees on a series of antique family furniture. The effect on wood after applying Gilboy wax is astonishing. Words are not enough to thank this company. Soon I will make new orders. Adriano Ferrari
Very fast loved the way it was laid out and the personal message.I used it today and was really impressed with how my Mothers Walnut table came up.It I Iwas given to me by my mum,it was the first thing she bought with her first wage packet.The table is 82 years old now and was looking sad so thanks to your excellent product it's given it a new lease of life.
Excellent product ...great service and lovely pakaging....has transformed my hall table...well done team Gilboy!
Gilboy's bees wax polish has brought my large Brittany table back to life. Highly recommended. John
I have followed the on line tuition and have applied 2 coats and am very pleased with the results so far.
Until I bought my first Gilboys Antique Gold I had been guilty of using the usual spray polish that covered anything from glass, plastic, metal to wood, but on inheriting a couple of old chairs that belonged to my grandparents I decided to Google what best to do to revive them because they were in a bit of a state after decades of neglect from an uncle who had recently died and he had inherited them. One of the searches came up with the Gilboys website and also a video which I watched and was highly impressed so I thought I would give it a go, nothing ventured nothing gained, plus the feedback from customers was extremely good. I received my tub of Gilboys Antique Gold together with the wire wool and cloths last week and I started work on the chairs this weekend, giving 24 hours between waxing and buffing. I must say I am extremely happy and impressed with the results with really not a lot of elbow grease needed. The chairs look great even though this is their first wax for probably half a century! They had endured having bleached wood with being in the sun, wood that had had paint dripped on it, overly dry wood from being too near an open fire, you name it they had it (apart from woodworm). The finish is lovely and has given the chairs a lovely mellow colour and the rough parts of the wood are now lovely and silky with the wax covering. I love it. Please don't change anything - your great! Thanks
I love the product, and the company, I definitely won't be using spray polish again.
So far so good. Easier to apply than others I have used. Made a definite difference to a dark walnut set of tables that have been looking less than their best for some time.
The clip top glass jar is nice but it is over-packed, I would have preferred simpler packaging and a lower price!
I am using the product for polishing japanned trays and other smaller japanned items. It does a pretty good job without discolouring the decorations. Probably a better option for this sort of work than varnish.
When I purchased this item I thought it was expensive compared to others, but the write up and the recommendations convinced me that you only get what you pay for.As one who does not believe in being penny wise and pound foolish I went for Gilboy's antique gold,I am not at all sorry that I did,the clock was in a sorry state when we started with it but at the end it came up with a gleaming shine and showed the true grain in the woodwork. Highly recommended.
I am recently retired so I decided to pursue my passion for restoring vintage furniture. After searching the web to find the best products available to give life back to these unloved pieces and I found it in Gilboy's. I have only completed 3 projects so far but the results are so much more than I ever expected. I am only a novice but the results I have been able to achieve could rival that of a professional. If I can get these results with Gilboy's products and online "how to" videos anyone can.
Promptly delivered and beautifully packaged with a nice personal touch. Have so far only waxed a small table but with excellent results. Will certainly be coming back for a refill.
I just love this polish. It’s made my furniture look absolutely amazing.
I used Gilboy's Rose Gold on a hope chest my Great-Grandfather made in 1907 for my Grandmother. Over the years very little care had been given this piece, only an occasional wipe with Pledge. A single application of Gilboy's and the wood is glowing with a depth of color that took my breath away. I am now on a mission to restore the beauty to all Grandmother's furnishings.
Absolutely great! It has transformed my oak coffer and it’s so good to know that only top quality natural ingredients are used. Smells lovely too!
I'm a violin player and that means that I need to double check before I put anything on my over-a-thousand dollar instrument. Usually I'd settle for no polish of any kind to my instrument but in this case, the violin was in need of a yearly touch up. The polish itself was hands-down the best smelling polish I've ever smelled. once applied, it does not leave an oily or waxy feel/residue which was a big worry for me being a first time buyer from Gilboy's. The polish is a nice yellow beeswax color and can be easily picked up with a cloth or even your fingers from out of the jar. The end results left me stunned! It was like applying a clear coat on the wood! it gleams and shines so nicely. And again, it doesn't leave any nasty residue left over! The customer service from this company is phenomenal and I was surprised to find that the total for my purchase was less than expected seeing as I like in California. If you have any doubts about them I suggest you research their products further and see if its right for you. If you play violin or any other wooden instrument I highly suggest Gilboy's Gold. You can't go wrong. Heres a link: https://beeswax-polish.co.uk/blogs/waxing-lyrical/the-best-polish-for-musical-instrument-care
Ordered wax from Gilboys! Unsure of what to use to apply it! Emailed Gilboys! Received link to soft wire wool within 10 minutes! Ordered it! Job done! Ace customer service and a great product! Thanks boys! x
The Pure Gold wax is amazing, my daughter is moving into her first home very soon and she purchased a "pre-loved" antique pine family dining table and chairs, which when new, was bespoke for the original owner. Although the table had a few dents and scratches I followed the video guide, which was excellent and using the Beeswax repair kit the table has come up a treat and brought life back to the table top! I used a combination of all 3 cubes to great effect and my daughter couldn't tell where I had filled in the dents or remember where they had been! Which was very satisfying, as I've never done anything like this before. Following wax application I left it over night and polished the table up the next day, it looks wonderful. The products are fabulous and the attention to detail with the hand gilded Bee on the scratch repair cubes gives that finishing touch, and shows how passionate you are about your products. The Gilboy Beeswax gives you a real sense of putting a little bit of nature back into the wood. What a thoughtful touch to include the Sweet Pea seeds, I will look forward to seeing them grow later in the summer! I will definately be ordering more supplies as I need them, as I'm on the look out for another project to restore back to it's full glory!
I have collected antique furniture since my childhood as a member of my family was an antiques dealer, and it formed part of my early life. Over the years I have used a number of pure beeswax polishes for maintaining my large collection of furniture. In 2017 I discovered Gilboys polish, and I bought a small amount to test it on a piece of Rosewood furniture that needed to be revived. It immediately left the furniture with a deep natural shine that enhanced the patina of the wood. I have also used Gilboys polish on my large collection of antique bronzes as well, as it also enhances the patina that bronzes develop over time. I have recently purchased a litre tin of the polish which represents very good value for money for such a high quality product.
It is simply the best polish I know, and I have recommended it to my friends many of whom are antiques dealers.
The packaging and presentation of your Polishing Kit was amazing, so professional and classy. As far as the product is concerned I still have not had a chance to try it out but will be doing so shortly. Thanks for the opportunity to test this.
For over 35 years i have waxed my traditional Ercol and matching stained furniture but have never been able to purchase a top quality natural, beeswax product that is dedicated to the darker furniture. Ercol themselves only made a natural colour beeswax which has been unavailable for years. I intend to keep using this product henceforth and keep my wood furniture in tip top condition.
Product was well wrapped during delivery and the presentation box and its' contents are classy. I am loathe to put it in a cupboard!!
Excellent service and so far a very good product. Easy to apply and not as dark as some of the coloured waxes on the market. Good all round reviver for wood! Would recommend and repurchase.
Excellent quality product. Packaging a bit over the top. Could reduce the price by a least £5 if just boxed in ordinary wrapping.
I have been using these clothes to bring my furniture up to a fine standard and getting better the more I use my Gilboys products and instructions. I find that as they are then imbued with the wonderful polish that when used to dust enhance that also. I love them, so soft even used them on mirrors...lovely, thanks to Gilboys for sharing their professional products with the public and at a nice price.
Having found the power of Gilboys gold this wire wool is the way I was advised by Gilboys to apply it. The effect is astounding and I am so happy to have professional quality and now the knowledge, generously shared, to achieve a professional finish to my furniture at home. Thanks Gilboys
This is certainly the best wood polish I have ever used. Superb quality, furniture comes up brilliantly. Plus the beeswax in it gives it a wonderful smell. Great customer service too.
I have yet to receive your product. Please let me know when it has been shipped. Thanks, Michael
Absolutely brilliant used correctly it brings a beautiful sheen to most furniture,will definitely purchase again.
I received the polish in its splendid packaging and thought if the polish is as good as the packaging there was great promise. The sweetpeas received immediate attention and I am pleased to report 100% germination, something to look forward to next year. Now the polish. I have a mahogany drop leaf table that I had polished with another antique polish but had found it difficult to use and spread. Your polish was a different story as following you "how to " clip I was able to get a very good result and a great improvement on my previous attempt. I am impressed with the polish and there are other pieces of furniture awaiting treatment.
This is the best polish that I have ever come across for using on antique mahogany furniture. The results are superb and very long lasting.
nearly finished waxing the carved wood sideboard. very intricately carved so have taken time with it. the cupboard doors I have done are now glowing.super product.
I could not be happier with your product. It is bringing new life to my restoration projects. My only problem is that my wife keeps stealing it to do touch-up work on the furniture in the house. She calls them "magic in a jar". At least she enjoys using the wax and has not asked me to do it for her!!!!
Thanks a gain for a fantastic product - Pete
The box arrived quickly and was very well packed. It;s so lovely it should be a gift for someone else but I just love using this polish. I have antique furniture and this polish is perfect for it. The very fine steel wool and quality cloths are first class. I will sow the sweet pea seeds as they are my favourite flowers. Well done Gilboys!
Have now used all 3 Bees wax polishes and they are superb coupled with the block wax used for filling holes and scratches....wonderful!
It certainly shines the furniture and you do not need to use a lot . It remains to be seen how long it lasts.
