Does what I expected very pleased thank you would but from again
Top flight product, easy to use with instant results.
I have only had the balsam a few days but really pleased with the product it has already become my ‘finish’ of choice.
We followed Simon’s You Tube video to strip and restore our much loved kitchen dining table. Delighted with the result and would highly recommend the Gilboys Pure Gold wax. From the beautiful packaging to the sumptuous feel of the wax, it oozed quality and produced a lovely finish. Extremely satisfying!
The wax polish is simply brilliant. I have used it on a cheery wood box with excellent results that far exceed all other polishes I have tried. The packaging is world class, especially the glass jars. It is always impressive, (but rare), when the manufacturers of a product treat their own product with the respect they would want their customers to have for the product.
Great service. Thanks
This starter kit has been perfect!
From Simon’s really helpful guidance videos on YouTube (which is how I found Gilboys), the speedy dispatch of my order and excellent communication re delivery, the beautifully presented package and the great quality of the products - truly a 5 star experience!
All of the above has meant that I’ve been able to refurbish a dining table ready for pride of place in the dining room of our new house and I’m delighted with the results, which are thanks to the guidance in Simon’s video and the quality of the products.
Will be sure to recommend you to others, it’s great to deal with a family run business who clearly put the quality of their products and service at the heart of what they do.
This is my third purchase of this wax which is the best wax I have found for using on both newly made and restored furniture. A really excellent product which is packed well and delivered quickly and efficiently. Will happily use again and again.
This is a great tester pack and perfect if, like me, you are an empty nester trying to patch up and repair a battered house after twenty-five years of occupation by what felt like 3 bison. The personalised service that Gilboys offer is second to none, and the box that will arrive is beautifully and cleverly designed and packed. The wax itself is gorgeous and smells heavenly. I am slowly waxing my way round our home and polishing up all sorts of elderly and more modern furniture of various hues and bringing it all back to life - all of which is reminding me of why we bought it in the first place. My grandmother's Liberty desk is next....
How often can you say that? Outstanding polish.
This is my 2nd review of a Gilboy's product.
I was recently looking for a replacement chest of drawers. After restoring my Fathers antique elephant tables I thought I'd shop 2nd hand instead of buying new and adding the Gilboys touch. I found a Pine unit going for a reasonable price but it was badly scratched and scuffed .. thats not a problem anymore. I picked up said unit and set about stripping oiling and finished off with Gilboys Pure Gold for astounding results.
Unfortunately I lost the before pics and had to redo the after ones but for what its worth the original finish was dull and the top of the unit was terribly scratched.
Thanks all at Gilboy's
Beautifully presented, quick turnaround from ordering.
Excellent product, our refinished drawers fell like silk after application and smell amazing. Highly recommend.
Fantastic product and really helpful vidoe guide. Simon answered my telephone enquiry so pleasantly it helped inspire my choice and encouraged my diy Trevor Page antique table
i bought Rose Gold after seeing a youtube video of Simon refurbishing some sun damaged mahogany which is a problem I have. I am only putting on one coat a day but I am now concerned that it will not really bring back the original colour to any significant extent and that instead I am building up a considerable layer of wax which will be a very effective barrier to any other attempt to restore the colour to the wood. I will however persevere despite my misgivings and am only reviewing now because emails prompting me to do so are being sent. The wax has certainly helped add lustre to a tired mahogany top of another piece that is not undamaged so I dont have a problem with the product per se but just at the moment I am not confident that it will do what I originally bought it to do.
These worked a treat once I got the hang of them.
5 stars because I was really pleased with the outcome, the large marks both old and new blended into the old dark polish nicely creating a seamless look. The cubes really do work.
However, it took me several hours to get the hang of it and I had to redo the wax several times. It wasn't as easy as it looks in the video and I had to read between the lines a bit. The upside of that is that I did no damage to the table by getting it wrong. I gently removed the wax and tried again.
Top tips: I highly recommend watching the video I used all of the advice in it at some point.
The room I was in needed to be a bit warmer to be able to work the wax into the scratch before it solidified (guy in video was wearing only a t-shirt).
I used a toothpick to transfer drips of wax into the scratches accurately.
I had to keep cleaning off the old clubcard I was using otherwise any residue ruined the new wax layer.
Born out of a refusal to accept poor quality polishes created using cheap ingredients in the name of profit.
