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.
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.
"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!"
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?
