Very pleased with the stater kit l purchased lovely packaging and the wax was fantastic will definitely be ordering wax and products from this company again
I ordered the COMPLETE BEESWAX FURNITURE POLISHING KIT, which was sent immediately.
Due to the coronavirus I received it about three weeks later and today I decided to wax a 20 year old pine dining table which we keep in our veranda.
THE WAX IS AMAZING!
It took me about three hours to sand the entire table AND ONLY 40 MINUTES TO WAX AND BUFF IT, top, sides, legs and all!!
I wish I had taken "before pictures", because the transformation is amazing and our table is now brand new! (Pls notice how the chair and the cat are reflected on the table!)
Thank you Gilboy's for the joy I brought to my wife after thirty years of marriage :)
I am very happy with the wax. Very easy to work with, natural shine, beautifully packed. Thank you.
I haven’t used the product yet but I love the packaging.
I decided (as a lockdown project) to renovate an old table.
I watched the Gilboy’s video on You Tube which was very comprehensive and gave me the confidence to get started.
I ordered the small waxing kit comprising of wax, wire wool & cloth.
I followed the instructions from the video and ended up with a better than new table.
Thank you Simon, great product.
Great product and service. Easy to use. Will be back for more
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!
First of all I’d like to say the packaging and attention to detail is so good that alone deserves six stars!!
The product smells great but the finish on my 19th century oak chairs left me a little disappointed, maybe I over applied the product but the finish didn’t look a lot different to the chairs I still had to do.
I’ll play around with the product some more
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.
This is a high end furniture wax that is well worth the cost. It goes on a little different from the Petrolium based waxes I have used in the past, but with a superior result. I like the pure gold so much that I went ahead and purchased another liter of it. I only used a bit of the rose gold to add color to the legs of a piano that I am refinishing and it did an amazing job of adding color to help that part of the leg match the rest of the leg.
Best shine I’ve ever achieved on my oak table. Lovely product and lovely people.
We inherited an old desk, stained a very dark brown. We wanted to see what colour it was underneath. We stripped the old stain off, sanded it smooth and clean. Luckily, it turned out a golden oak colour, which suited the pure gold wax.
It is coming up beautiful, thank you for a wonderful product.
I'm not one to write reviews. But, I am one that has used numerous high end products on my furniture for proper care. Though many of theses products did work well, there was always something lacking to make me search for a better one. After using Gilboys, my search has ended. I was so pleased that I placed a second order.
I decided I wanted to completely strip my dining table and oil and wax it. Having never done this before I went on line to get some advice. I watched quite a few videos before I came across Gilboys. The tutorial video I watched was very well presented and easy to follow that I decided to purchase their product. When it arrived(48 hours) it was very well wrapped and presented with lots of information of how the Beeswax was made. I was very pleased with my purchase and would recommend Gilboys. I have since finished my dining table and am very pleased with it too.

I have been working professionally with wood finishes and French polishing since I was 14 year's old I now own a small business specialising in antique clock restoration and Gilboys products are by far the best we've ever used .
The guys at the office are always amazingly knowledgeable and helpful .
So happy to have Found such a great product / company certainly will not be changing suppliers for a very long time .
Keep up the great work Gilboys
On arriving at Gilboys’s shop to pick up my order I was really impressed by the welcome I received,Simon gave me some fantastic advice on how to prepare & restore my table & chairs. I followed his advice and the icing on the cake was the finish l got using pure gold beeswax.
If I have any furniture restoration projects in the future I will certainly use Gilboy products.
Amazing product and excellent customer service.
Swift delivery and combined with the excellent You Tube video, we renovated a second-hand ercol dining table and it looks fantastic. The wax is lovely to work with and a little goes a long way, so don’t be put off. Sweet Peas were a nice touch too. Only criticism, and it’s nothing to do with the product, perhaps it’s overly packaged? Will definitely use again.
Excellent polish and a great service, and I really like your ethical approach to the ingredients and production.
