Works as promised. Great packaging and service

Loved how the package arrived so nicely set up inside with instruction booklet and all. Handwritten note and small touches made the difference in addition to this being a product that really works as well. 5 stars for sure

Wax polish

Really great product, will be buying more products as hoping to take up furniture restoration in the new year, though there seems to be so many people taking this up, so not sure if it is worth it, thank you guys for all your support too, Merry Christmas!! :)

Very good!

Been looking for an old-fashioned wood polish. This does the job, removing stains whilst caring for the wood. Good job.


This is an AMAZING coat for antiques. I have a large corner cabinet and a chair I caned both from the late 1800s. I used Gilboys on both of them and they came out fabulous. It is well with the shipping to the U.S.A. Because the look is perfect in the end. No one can believe it is the same cabinet. Follow the easy to understand directions, and you will be amazed yourself.

Starter Kit

Great way to be introduced to this product and value for money, I definitely will be a returning customer to Gilboy's in the future. Very Pleased

Gilboys leather balsam

I am a fan and regular user of Gilboys wax polishes so was delighted to see the addition of a leather balsam and was confident it would be a quality product - I was not disappointed- I used the polish on my vintage Mulberry handbag with fantastic results (much better than with the product Mulberry recommend) the balsam feeds and polishes the leather without any greasy residue - it has revived the colour and blended scuffs and marks in a natural way bringing back the depth and richness of the leather - Fantastic product and service as usual from Gilboys!

I've been using this Beeswax to polish some antique Windsor chairs, the finish is beautiful and would recommend this product to anyone wanting a top class product.

Jute Bag

Immediately I received my order, I tried to message you to say how delighted I was with my bag most particularly as the only Jute one I had was a horrible thing from Tesco, a shop I never frequent other than when I had to go there once in an emergency. I am really pleased with it as I am unable to carry heavy shopping but it serves me very well if I just have a small amount of purchases. I did not respond to the feedback regarding the Balsam as I had not tried it but have done so on a Gucci bag and I think it has improved it immensely. As it happens, just had to throw your little card away that is addressed personally. I love those black cards with the lovely white calligraphy.

Magic Balsam

Really pleased with the results on both a pair of boots and one of my wife’s handbags. They look and feel nourished but natural. Fantastic.
Thoroughly recommended...

Leather lustre

You do not need a lot of this balsam on the sponge as it goes a long way. Then after it polishes to leave a really nice sheen. Great product to revitalize older and worn leather.


I felt like I was feeding my eight Georgian era chairs.
Shiny and healthy was the result. The large polishing cloth is a must

just what i needed

I got myself a desk, its got a green colour leather inlay, its not been cared for to well what with burns scratches and little faces yes its ink its not coming off, but still it looks so much better with a clean using Natural Beeswax Leather Conditioner Balsam from the Gilboy's. love the Gilboys, used it on my leather bags my granddaughter used it on her Dr Martins, now all a need to know is do you do a bigger pot of your leather balsam well I wont run out of it then will I with love and many thanks Jackie

Antique Gold

Fantastic furniture polish. Initially purchased the polish for my sun bleached desk, and very happy with the results. Ended up polishing all the other antiques in the house; it brings out the colour and grain of the wood really well.

Thank you James. It's great to hear you have had success. And thank you for taking time to review it for us. Kind regards Simon
Excellent product - packaging could be better

I have applied the polish and could not be happier with the result.

However, the product was a bit dry on the top - I presume because the metal ring to keep the jar sealed was damaged and could not keep the lid tight. The jar sealer was already damaged when I received it and should have been noticed before it was shipped.

Hi Gene. Thank you for your review. I apologise if the seal was somehow compromised. All of our waxes will have a slightly hard crust on top. It forms as it cools for a few minutes in our workshop before closing the lid. Other paint companies add a chemical to stop this from happening but we want to keep our polish as natural as possible. Once you start using it softens and applies in just the same way. Best Wishes Simon
Good Buffer but too many bits

Good buffer material , but as it is cut from a roll all the cut edges shed bits . Rather annoying.

Hi Alex. Thanks for your review. We did look at getting the cloth hemmed but it wasn't possible with the open weave of the pure cotton. The pay off is, it buffs our polish beautifully. We do understand it could shed small bits of cotton off the cut end but if you tuck them in it works nicely. Thank you and sorry at the same time.
Excellent product

This is my second order from Gilboys and I was again very pleased with the product. The packaging could be improved. My first purchase has really dried out since it was sent to me with a broken jar seal which should have been noticed when it was package.

Hi Jackie. Im sorry if the seal had somehow been compromised. We now use Le-Parfait jars that have a fantastic seal on them. I apologise if it was missed in the packing. Please message us if you ever would like some more. I will add some additional accessories to compensate for any loss. Kind regards ~Simon

Hi Jackie. I think we should make you a Gilboy's ambassador. It really makes us happy to find out that others are having as much success with our polish as we do. Thank you. x
