I use Howards Butcher Block Conditioner, once it dries it has a bit of shine to it. It is mineral oil and natural waxes mixed together.
Another tip for shine….
Sand the board to 200 grit, spritz the board with water to raise the grain, then sand again to 220.
When you apply finish to grain that is unraised, the grain raises with the finish and gives a dull appearance.
Try it, I think you will see a difference.
