'pure gold' Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit
keith tingley (Welling, GB)
Very good

Haven’t used it still repairing surface. Very nicely presented well packaged With some nice details on the package

Lovely product to use!

This Ercol easy chair was bought by my parents when newly married in 1957, and at some point in the ‘70s my father thought it would be a good idea to varnish it a horrible purple blue colour. I’ve only just now, on retirement myself and with time on my hands, stripped the frame back to plain beech, and the beeswax ‘pure gold’ finish from Gilboys is both a delight to apply and a gorgeous finish to look at, I’m very pleased with the result. The product came beautifully packaged too!

Great customer service

Customer service from Simon was excellent, he advised me on the steps I needed to take to match an oak balustrade that I’m making to my clients antique dresser.
I purchased a beeswax polish which was delivered promptly in great packaging.
Once I’ve finished the project I’ll be sure to post pictures of the transformation.

A great company to deal with.

Fast delivery, Great products

Furniture restoring kit arrived on time, the products are neatly boxed with a small box of great sweet pea seeds - lovely touch. I have a recycle project which will get underway soon, but I am confident these products will bring the G Plan tables back to life

Great product, great result!

After inheriting a few family pieces that needed a lot of TLC and finding Simon's super helpful videos on YouTube I ordered a starter kit to get me going. It's great. It arrived quickly, beautifully packaged and the wax has done a brilliant job bringing the shine and the memories back.

From start to finish what excellent products and amazing service, just a quick phone call and I restored two chairs with expert advice from Simonf what first class service

Revelationary results

I have used various antique polishes on my oak and mahogany furniture but Gilboys was a revelation. After only one application my cherished pieces took on a revitalised glow. Even on relatively modern polished furniture it gives a super smooth finish and feel.
A bonus is the discount allowed on repeat orders where the return of the empty jar is pre-paid.
Look no further, this is the very best.

wax on....leave 20 mins..buff off

love yr youtube master classes.thank you for sharing yr knowledge.

Great natural product

After an online search for 'natural and sustainable wax polish', I chose Gilboy's Pure Gold, and I'm very happy with the first coat results; one door down, 11 to go!
Easy to apply, easy to buff, all it requires is a little time and effort, and the sheen, and smell, is lovely.
There's a wealth of videos on YouTube to watch for how to's, the packaging is plastic free with great attention to detail, and I loved the free seeds for the bees. Will definitely be back for more.

Perfect products

I have never attempted furniture restoration in the past but your videos gave me the confidence to have a go. I have two antique tables, one dining room table and one coffee table and i followed the video for every stage. I loved the results and the wax is an absolute joy to apply and use. My tables have been bought back to life and they have a beautiful honeyed (no pun intended) glow and also smell lovely. The service was excellent and the personal touches on and in the packaging our totally charming. I surprised myself and thoroughly enjoyed the process from start to finish and look forward to restoring more items.
Thank you to all at Gilboy’s

Extremely pleased with all aspects of the Gilboys company; fast service to the States, exceptional products, and a personal note of thanks from Ian. I have been refinishing/restoring furniture and antiques for 40 years and I appreciate quality. I hope to be a repeat customer of Gilboys for years to come.

The bee's knees (not even sorry)

Smartly presented, packaged neatly. Joy using the wax - furniture feeling full of life and glowing colour! Very grateful I came across your YouTube channel. I was getting fed up searching for something that doesn't make antiques feel gloomy.
Thank you

Furniture Polishing Starter Kit (3x80ml)

I applied the wax to an oak table, the extra leaves, which are rarely used had faded over the years so I applied pure gold to the top of the table and antique gold to the extension leaves, WOW, the result is amazing, now they virtually match. Delighted with the results. Only drawback is we seem to be getting a lot of honey bees coming in to investigate the table.... Good job we like bees.

Great mix of wax

I found, Gilboys wax, brilliant, easy to apply, with 0000 steel wool, and polish off, with tbe cotton netting cloth I also bought, over an oil finnish, on a chair I was restoring.
Great quality, Gilboys wax, finished of tbe chair nicely.

I am really impressed with the beeswax polishing kit I received. It's made my haggard wooden furniture look much better and I'm amazed at how easy it is to use. Will buy more in the future, Gilboy's provide a great service and live the youtube videos.

Ercol Restoration.

Many thanks for your e-mail following up my purchase of your Furniture Polishing Starter Kit.

I am absolutely delighted with it !

Recently I inherited an Ercol dining table and 4 chairs together with a rocking chair.

The Dining Set was 'blond' Ercol and I have now completed restoring this.

I followed your advice in the You Tube video you produced and I am now a subscriber !

You will see that I have attached some photos of the restored table and chairs.

The darkly stained rocking chair is a work in progress, but I have attached a 'before' photo for you.

When it's completed I will let you have the 'after' photo !

I admire and fully support your 'eco and sustainability' principles and your products are excellent. I shall be ordering some more !

The bonus is that restoring pieces of furniture is a hobby that my dear wife supports !

Kind regards,

Stephen Badcock.

Amazing results

Gilboy's is an amazing product. Easy to use and fabulous results; I applied to a dried out oak table which belonged to a friend. She thought she would have to completely sand and refinish it. She was amazed at the results and it took me less than 45 min. Just a bit of polish and some effort and viola! Looks fabulous

New light oak bannister, spindles etc. and doors.

All the stair parts and doors were fitted unfinished.
Simon’s video on your website was invaluable. I took his advice for bare wood and first rubbed in clear hard wax oil after first sanding all smooth. After letting it all dry for a day or so I fine sanded smooth again. I then applied the pure gold bees wax polish with the 0000 Wire wool ( in the finishing kit I also ordered ) this went on lovely and smoothly. After a good half hour I polished it up. We are delighted with the results so far. The delay in reviewing was because it’s still work in progress.
I’ve previously used pure gold on oak furniture and always delighted with the result.
I will need to use the 25% off refill offer to fully complete the job.
The box of sweat peas is a lovely touch, these are already sprouting in the greenhouse.
Thank you Simon and the team for a great product and helpful advice.

Lovely product

Recommended by a friend.Smells wonderful.


Excellent looking product, can't wait to use it. Good pre purchase advice, lovely packaging too. Five stars.


Lovely to apply and brings leather back to life. Have used on Dubarry boots (it’s much better than their own leather conditioner), Doc Marten’s and beaten up stable boots. All look transformed!
