Review: Lush D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap

Lush D'Fluff
It shouldn't come as any surprise to regular readers that I am quite the lover of Lush products, but given that I never have baths and can't use products which contain SLS (that's basically all their soaps & shower gels), my options are always pretty limited. I love their fresh face masks and their other skincare, and when I spotted the new Strawberry Shaving Soap, I decided I had to give it a whirl! I went for the smaller of the two sizes available, the 70g, just in case I didn't like it.
Lush D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap
The packaging is the standard black screw-cap plastic Lush pot, which does the job pretty nicely and of course, once you've collected five of these pots you can swap them in-store for a fresh face mask, and the pots will be re-used! The product housed in the pot is a thick pink cream which almost feels like mousse in texture; at first I really wasn't impressed with it, but I've since found I need more than I expected to work well. Around a grape-sized blob (technical term) is about right for one leg; the soap lathers nicely and smells gorgeous. I've found I get a nice close shave using D'Fluff, and my legs feel lovely and soft afterwards, though I do always moisturise after showering. I've found the occasional slightly larger chunk of what I assume to be strawberry can clog my razor, but this problem is easily removed by regularly rinsing the blade, as the instructions suggest.
Lush D'Fluff Review
"De-fluffed and delightful! We've whipped up our shaving soap with fresh strawberries, golden syrup, rosehip oil and cocoa butter to leave you silky-smooth and smelling sweet. Had enuff of the ruff stuff? This bright pink shaving soap is full of soothing and softening ingredients. How to Use: Smooth over the skin and shave as you would normally, sluicing the blade often. Good to know: This can be used on chins, pins and underarms... Wherever you want to be smooth and de-fluffed!"
Lush D'Fluff Ingredients
Overall, I've been enjoying using D'Fluff as it smells beautiful and makes shaving easy, leaving my legs soft and smooth, but I'm not sure it's worth the price point; it seems expensive for how much you need per application and I don't really feel like it does a better job than other shaving products I've used in the past. I might repurchase it in future as a treat as it is so nice to use, but I don't see myself buying this every time. Lush D'Fluff is priced at £5.75 for 70g or £9.95 for 150g of product, and is available from Lush in-store and online. Have you tried D'Fluff? What's your shaving product of choice?

  3. This sounds and looks like something I would love to buy, but as you said it's quite expensive for what it is!
    I might treat myself to it one payday though, a strawberry smelling shaving cream does sound lovely! :)

  4. OMG! Is it bad that I think this stuff looks good enough to eat?! haha. I really need to branch out and try other products from the Lush range...I usually just head straight for the bath bombs and melts.

  6. I normally use my normal body wash actually. I've experimented using coconut oil which some people have suggested but it clogged up my razor too much.

  7. It does sound lovely but like you, I'm not sure it's worth it but it's a nice treat. I love using the imperial leather foam burst shower gels for shaving, they're amazing at just £2 and last for over 50 uses xx

  12. Isn't the name just awesome! It is a bit expensive, I'm not too sure if I'd buy it myself as I really like the Imperial Leather Body Foam (something like that) which are excellent for shaving.
