Get rid of the rough stuff
Our fresh and fruity shaving soap will have you dreaming of summer picnics every time you take a whiff. We’ve whipped fresh strawberries and egg whites with moisturizing rosehip oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil into a light, marshmallow-y soap that softens skin when you shave with it. Plus, all those hydrating ingredients keep post-shaving redness to a minimum!
For starters, it was pink! I have a weakness for all things pink (lipgloss, nailpolish, bath & body products, haircare products, stationary, tools, packaging, etc…). I mean, let’s face it, shaving isn’t exactly the most glamorous thing in the world, but the fact that this soap is a bright, cheerful pink makes shaving slightly more girly and fun!
Even better was the fact that this stuff was strawberry-scented (with actual strawberry pieces in it)! It also had Rosehip Oil and Cocoa Butter so it wouldn’t dry out your skin post-shave. Truth be told, I was actually looking forward to the strawberry scent but when I used this stuff, I could never actually detect the scent. I used it as soon as I got it so it wasn’t like I stored in direct sunlight or whatever. It might possibly have something to do with the fact that I’m generally standing while shaving my legs, precariously balancing one leg (or toe, rather) on the shower faucet handle fixture thingy (I was so infatuated with the idea of a walk-in shower and sorta’ forgot about the practicality of it). Whatever it is, I’m slowly realizing that not all Lush products made in Kuwait are as scented as their overseas counterparts, sad to say.
Regardless, D’Fluff was fun to use to er, de-fluff but I’ll be sticking with my Nivea Cool Kick Shaving Foam (For Men) because it just gets the job done with less of a hassle. What I mean by that is, I can just apply the Nivea Shaving Foam straight to my legs, shave them, and be done with it whereas with the Lush Shaving Soap, I have to work up a lather. It’s not a deal-breaker but seeing as how I’m always late to everything (for example, early morning meetup at the beach or pool) sometimes I just wanna’ get it over with as quickly as possible and go hang out with everyone else, y’know? Also, with Shaving Foam (which stays put) you can clearly see where you’ve shaved (because the Foam will be gone) whereas with Shaving Soap it’ll either evaporate (completely invisible by the time you get to the part you wanna shave) or slowly drip down, meaning you keep having to go back in for more, and have to work it into a lather all over again, which makes your hand slippery, loosening your grip on the razor, which increases the probability of a few shaving mishaps. I’m just talking worst-case scenario here.
I know it sounds like I’m bashing Lush D’Fluff Shaving Soap, but I’m really not. Regardless of it’s moisturizing properties, it didn’t leave any annoying residue (pet peeve of mine). In fact, I actually had to moisturize my pins after using this stuff so I’m quite pleased about that. I actually enjoyed using it all up! I’m not saying it’s bad. I’m just saying it’s not my all-time favorite (that would be Nivea Cool Kick Shaving Foam For Men).
Was this stuff fun to use? Sure! Will I be purchasing it again? Definitely. Will it be anytime soon? Probably not.
