The service and product quality completely matched my expectations. Thank you.
Feeling very pampered as a customer. Pleasant surprise to be treated as an individual, not a robot who happens to buy stuff. Well done to the team
After asking for advice which was prompt in getting, I purchased the Rose & Gold kit. Beautiful packaging, easy to use and the difference to the Arts & Crafts chair I’m restoring is amazing after using the Rose wax. The wood now sings. Used it on a Mid-Century dresser same great results, now about to tackle more chairs with the Gold, the smell is pleasant and the whole experience of dealing with the company and its product only positive. Highly recommend.
This product is absolutely superb the quality is excellent. Very well packaged and comes with useful tips and instructions all you ever need to to rejuvenate tired looking furniture i have just waxed a rosewood coffee table and it has been transformed so well gilboys i will definitely be using you again
First I purchased the Gilboy’s polishing with beeswax starter kit. From this I decided that I would use Antique Gold to polish my badly faded and sun bleached harmonium. Next I purchased a 125ml pot of Antique Gold which, with the smaller pot in the starter kit, was more than enough to polish the whole harmonium - even with two or three applications to the worst areas. The polish has brought colour back to the wood and has buffed up to a a very satisfying shine. It has left scratches, marks and dings on the harmonium looking darker without obscuring the part they play in the instrument’s one hundred plus years of history. My wife is now finding me other pieces of furniture around the house to revitalise their finish with Gilboy’s!
Gilboy’s is an ethical company. Their products are despatched promptly, and with nice packaging being personalised for the individual customer. The box of sweet pea seeds is a lovely touch.
If you want a top quality product and excellent customer service then look for Gilboy’s.
Made my 19th century silver chest and my antique Fortnum and Mason wooden tea chest look like new.
After buying the Gilboy's Beeswax starter kit, I thought I'd give their leather treatment a try after about 10 years of neglect.
It's made a huge difference! The leather feels fresh and supple again and has it's nice sheen back.
The sweet peas included are an added bonus. Got to thank the Bees!
Brilliant packaging and quick delivery. The waxes are very good, easy to apply and they produce excellent results. I will definitley be purchasing again, you can buy with confidence.
Excellent polish and a great service, and I really like your ethical approach to the ingredients and production.
Very good product, really made my antique writing bureau/bookcase look good. Polish doesn't have a horrible lingering smell like most antique furniture polishes do. Very happy with my purchase! Thank you!
I bought this kit to help renovate a very sun bleached Edwardian desk. the kit arrived within 2 days of being ordered. The desk is inlaid rosewood veneer with different levels of sun bleaching. By using Rose Gold and Antique Gold on different parts of the desk I have managed to give it a more even colour overall and finished off with a final coat of Pure Gold. I am looking at it as I type this and still cannot get over how much life it has breathed into this very attractive piece of furniture. Thank you for an excellent product and prompt service and such helpful videos. Roger
I am at present restoring a dressing table the difference in the wood is astounding so pleased thank you for this miracle
Excellent product and service. The kit was beautifully presented with a lovely personal message enclosed.
Has given my leather suite new life lovely healthy looking.Very supple . It is do good ordered one for my daughter to use .
This is a superb product and has brought the shine and lustre back to my sadly neglected oak furniture. Also to be applauded is the excellent client care and personal service.
In an age of conformity, Gilboys stands apart. The box arrived with a beautifully scripted handwritten note and the quality of the packaging made it a pleasure to open. The polish itself is nice to use and I’ve only had time to try it on an antique tea caddy so far, but it cleaned the inlaid marquetry up and gave a nice natural shine to the wood. I’m looking forward to trying it on some sun-bleached mahogany next. I think that the key thing is to allow time to do the job properly rather than rushing it. Also in the box is a smaller box containing some sweet pea seeds for the benefit of the bees, whose work is essential to the production of this polish.
Beautifully presented purchase. Wax has transformed a very sun bleached table.
Reviving beeswax love. No longer needs a tablecloth. Naked pine.😁
Brilliant ,loved the packaging and the product.
Bought this with some trepidation as it is not a cheap product. However, this is a wonderful product, easy to use, cost effective - a little goes a long way, and gives an excellent professional finish even for bumbling amateurs like me.
Packaging is beautiful, thoughtful eco addition of the sweetpea seeds, and refill and discount option is brilliant marketing.
I ordered the ‘antique gold’ Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit, and carefully followed the instructions when I waxed and polished our Grandfather clock, which was made by Thomas Storer in Derby in the 1730s and has been in our family for many generations. It has only been superficially waxed and polished over the past few years, but I gave it a deep and thorough clean with your special cloths and Beeswax polish and it turned out beautifully! Thank you so much Gilboy’s!
I bought the Gilboys leather conditioner to treat my sofa. I haven’t actually got round to doing my sofa because after doing a test area on it I was so excited by the product that I have ended up treating my various leather handbags. The conditioner has brought my older, tired looking bags back to life - they look like they’ve had a nice long drink and been re-hydrated! I can’t wait to get going on my sofa. The packaging was great, and felt very personal. Would highly recommend the product and the Company.
I bought the leather balsam and tried it on an old leather cushion that had seen better days. Well...what can I say, this stuff is nothing short of amazing! It's revitalised it so much I'm proud to have it back in the living room. Now working my way round the house looking for leather to treat!!
These Buffing cloths really do help to finish the polishing to a treat.
Would highly recommend.
Everything about the product is wonderful and I'm enjoying working with it a great deal. As impressed as I was with the product, it was the hand-written note inside the box, beautifully illustrated, that truly set Gilboy's apart. I look forward to working with Gilboys for a long time!
Purchased this on a whim having seen it being used on a TV programme. I loved the idea of having 3 different samples so as to use on different woods. The package was beautifully wrapped with a personal message inside too. I thought this was lovely and a nice gesture. The products look extremely professional and can't wait to try them!
The polish is bringing life back to a long neglected Chinese black lacquered box. It really is making a difference
I'd never tried polishing furniture with beeswax polish before and the starter kit was excellent - complemented by the very helpful video on-line on how to apply the polish. Great results!
Prompt delivery , beautifully personalised delivery card and offer of advice. Great product
Received my beautifully packaged polish quickly, was keen to give it a go and restore some love in to the wood around the home that’s been a bit neglected . Have used quickly just to try it and so far so good but will watch some of the videos so I can properly enhance the furniture and restore the shine and colour. So far so good
Not only is the product excellent I bought the Antique gold polishing kit so was the service I would recommend Gilboys products
We had been trying to find a good, colourless wax which did not have a lingering odour in order to finish a table renovation project. Whilst watching he brilliant Salvage Hunters programme, we noticed that one of Drew's experts was using Gilboys wax and so the 'googling' began. We couldn't be more impressed with the Company details, the speed of delivery, the amazing packaging and the kit we bought, which contained everything we needed to get the table tip top - much better than just a pot of wax! Fabulous!
The wax is perfect. I recently obtained a late medieval piece dated to the late 1500s- early 1600s in delicate condition that has had a hard life (most recently in a sheep pen). I didn't want to put anything too heavy or thick on because the finish is pretty much original. This wax ticks all the right boxes. Safe for fragile antique items, easy to work with, smells nice, exceptional customer service, and environmentally responsible. In the attached pictures: Left is before and the right is during and there's a close up of a small finished area. I did a dry clean with soft vacuum brush and used a slightly moist mild soapy Qtip on the mud spots that wouldn't come off with the vac. Then I applied a thin coat of the Gilboys, let it dry, and wiped once. I haven't even buffed it up or gotten to the crevices and it already looks miles better!!! I'm glad to send a picture of the chest when I'm done with the whole thing. Thank you all so much. You've got a customer for life! PS- Thanks for the sweet peas, helping to save the environment and the bees!
