Lately, I've been on a bit of a Lush thing. I like being able to go in and browse, whilst seemingly always finding something new, something clever, something I could use. You might have seen in my Lush Haul a few weeks back that one of these items that I'd managed to pick up to give a go was D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap. This was sort of a on-a-whim buy when I was doing an online order, but it is something I've heard a fair amount about and I have thought about trying in the past and so when it arrived I was super excited to give it a go.
We have to start with the smell because although this is described as strawberry scented, that's definitely not the smell that I get. I definitely am not a big fan of this scent, it's floral and almost medicinal - and me, Katy and my mum all agree that this smells like something that we just don't seem to be able to place at all. If you can get over the smell though, this is definitely a product worth giving a good go.
At £5.75 for 70g worth of product, this definitely isn't towards the higher priced end of Lush products, however it is worth noting that that's considerably more than I'd ever consider paying for shaving foam, personally. Having said that, I tend to use conditioner and regularly cut myself to shreds, so six quid was more than worth it in order to have my legs still intact by the end of the bath. Although I hate the scent of this, I really do like the texture. This is soft and buttery - almost whipped - and goes on much like you would expect from a body butter; it doesn't foam, but it does lather up in the same way that a bar of soap would if you rub it between your hands. I find it better to wet skin, rub this in and shave one leg at a time - you really do have to wash your razor every few strokes though, but when you finish shaving I have to say this does leave skin remarkably soft without the need for a body butter or lotion (although I do still use it because, you know, go skincare.)
All in all, this product definitely has it's flaws, mainly that it only comes in one scent which makes me feel a little ill (although might work really well for you, who knows!), but it really is worth the money. I'll be repurchasing it in the future for sure, I just have to make sure I'm mixing it in with a really strong bath bomb or bubble bar to make sure that the smell is muted a little!
Have you ever tried D'Fluff? What did you think?
