Recent project (early Regency sewing box) had a damaged, sun-bleached, very sad 220 year old rosewood veneer with pearl inlay and I've been avoiding restoring it for months because getting it wrong can make it even worse and sometimes completely unrecoverable. I'd found Gilboys on Youtube looking for French polish techniques a few months back and decided to check out the products on their website...purchased the trio starter kit to see how it got on...and genuinely, I cannot praise them enough - the stuff is amazing.
Used the Rose Gold Wax (after the most terrifying prep stage of all time - I can just about handle stripping Victorian but anything earlier practically gives me hives) and within seconds of buffing I knew I'd found something really special. Unsurpassed quality - and you can tell just by the way the wood behaves when it makes contact, literally drinks Gilboys - and the finish is simply gorgeous. The grain of the wood just popped immediately which doesn't happen with products that are stuffed with chemicals to give a faux sheen - you can tell everything in it is natural and specifically chosen for its properties.
The kit comes with the right grade wool and cotton buffer to apply - use them (!) and don't be tempted into thinking these innocuous items don't make a difference, they really do - and if you're in doubt about anything, find Gilboys on Youtube.
Much longer review than I meant to give - but I'm so impressed that I felt they really deserved me to take the time to write it. The whole world is obsessed with artificial, throw-away items and to find a company that are super talented, truly love what they do and what they make is so rare. Zero plastic in the packaging, personal note in the delivery, highest quality product they can make...just perfect - and so thank you! I'll never use anything again!
Beautifully packaged and fast delivery looking forward to using my pure gold beeswax polish.The sweet peas are a lovely surprise and reflect attention to detail..Thank you for excellent service x
Really impressed with the product, the best I’ve used and the results are truly outstanding. Would not use anything else and I recommend to everyone else looking for the very highest quality wax. Beautifully packaged as well.
It took a little longer to write my review because you don’t ship to my country so I had to send it to someone to send to me 🙃 It really did a beautiful job on my furniture. I just had it refinished and was told not to use spray polish. You only need a small amount for a beautiful shine that repels water as well! You also receive a nice note and some seeds. Will definitely be ordering again
I was inspired by the utube video and ordered the starter kit. I finished off 2x
projects using the rose gold and antique gold polish and am delighted with both results. The lustre on the wood is excellent. Thoroughly recommend this brand.
An excellent product. Third time of ordering- won’t use anything else
Amazing product - really brings out the grain in the wood. Not to mentions, smells fantastic!
Product is as good as advertised. Customer service is outstanding.
Can’t wait to try out my beeswax antique gold on my wardrobes. Will give a full review when I’ve used this product. I was surprised and delighted at the same time to receive the wire wool and polishing cloths.
I also purchased the starter kit. So will review that also.
Fabulous professional finish and I’ve completely revitalised my dining table. I’m extremely pleased my purchase.
Excellent service from Gilboys and the wax is brilliant. The Sweet Pea seeds are a bonus!
Both excellent !
FANTASTIC SERVICE AND FANTASTIC WAX
My parcel arrived promptly in Spain, beautifully packaged and personalised - a lovely touch. I followed the Gilboy’s YouTube demo on how to strip and polish - in my case, an old wooden cabinet which was in such a sad state, I was about to throw it out, but decided to keep after watching the video. I then applied Gilboy’s Rose Gold wax as instructed - so lovely to work with. It looks absolutely beautiful now. I can’t stop admiring my handiwork. Thank you, Gilboy’s! I highly recommend your products and service. PS I shall be planting my sweet pea seeds very soon.
I have only just started to use your beeswax but so far it is performing brilliantly I thoroughly recommend these products and look forward to continuing to use this company in the future
I’ve used Antique Gold on a pair of Victoria dark wood (mahogany?) dining chairs and also a dried-out-looking rustic kitchen chair (oak?). All have transformed from rather dull finish to a rich gleam. The 0000 wire wool is excellent and the video invaluable.
Beautifully packaged product with a wonderful personal touch. Without doubt the best furniture polish I have ever used. Gives a luster like no other. Would make aa super present or gift. Highly recommended, wil be back for more.
Bought 3 of these, they come in a woven bag and are impressively packed. used them the other day and do a great job of little repair marks. Top service again from Gilboys.
Excellent service and product - well recommended!
From initially opening the tasteful packaging, to the application of the wax on a tired old piece of furniture that has brought it up a treat; I am very impressed with your product. Will be sowing the sweet pea seeds shortly and am looking forward to some fine blooms. My sincere thanks to you all. Nigel Leonard
loved the video so bought the product. hand written message. thanks for great service and an amazing product.
I have used Gilboys polish for many years. It adds a wonderful shine and a real glow to my antique Georgian furniture collection. I have also used it on several antique Bronzes, and the polish helps to enhance the natural patina that bronzes acquire over a period of time. Gilboys polish is, without doubt, the best natural bees wax polish on the market.
With kind regards,
Due to illness in the family I haven't been able to use the product sent yet.
I'm sure these products will be as good as all of the other Gilboys products thanks .
The wax has given our table a lovely new shine and the well worn benches now look much better
Very pleased with the product which has helped transform a table. Online guides are also excellent. Efficient customer service with a personal touch about it. Have already recommended to friends and will definitely use again. Thank you Gilboys.
I have just used the Rose Gold wax on the table.
It’s easy to use,the wire wool really helps with spreading the wax to cover the wood. Building up to the colour we want slowly. Really pleased with the service and the presentation box with a pack of sweet peas and repair block is a nice thought.
More emphasis on polishing a small area as I under estimated the effort to buff to a shine However I did ignore the instructions and put wax on a 9 foot table in one go! Resorted to an industrial buffer “spectacular” results .
smells good too. It has put years back on an old wooden furniture with just one coat.
Impressive packaging, original personalised message. Brilliant product. Used it straight away following advice. Lovely results. Will be back. Oh and sweet peas, nice touch.
We use this to renovate oak kitchen doors, which give a great finish. This product has no real competition and is outstanding in every way. I would highly recommend it
fast delivery,lovely packaging and works really well on furniture and leather. Great
thank you for the helpful advise before I bought this product and how to apply it, the lovely packaging and the hand written note. It worked a treat and has revived it and put the colour back into it with a healthy shine. I need this for my hair :0). Good to see yopur helping the environment too.
