LUSH D’Fluff Shaving Soap

Posted in Beauty

Hello! I’m making it my own personal mission to get through my backlog of reviews, so do bear with me!  One item I’ve been meaning to review for an embarrassing long time is the LUSH D’Fluff Shaving Soap.

LUSH D'Fluff Shaving Soap - Famous in Japan

LUSH D’Fluff Shaving Soap

£5.75/£9.95 – LUSH

They say:

We’ve whisked up our shaving soap with fresh strawberries and cocoa butter to create a gorgeous bit of fluff that leaves you silky smooth. This marshmallowy treat contains coconut oil, golden syrup, and egg whites to create a light texture that makes de-fluffing a dream.

Use on the legs, face, or as a body wash: simply smooth over the skin and shave, rinsing the blade often.

Ingredients:

Water (Aqua), Rapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, Golden Syrup, Glycerine, Organic Rose Hip Oil, Fair Trade Organic Cocoa Butter, Fresh Strawberries, Fresh Organic Free Range Egg Whites, Organic Maple Sugar, Fair Trade Vanilla Absolute, Sweet Wild Orange Oil, Rose Absolute, Sodium Chloride, EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Sodium Hydroxide, Perfume, Titanium Dioxide, Eugenol, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Colour 16035, Colour 45410.

I say:

I’m not usually one to faff around with fancy shaving soaps and gels at bath time; finding a usable razor is all the effort that I make.  However, when I was gifted a little pot of D’Fluff at the LUSH Leeds Re-Opening, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.

LUSH D'Fluff Shaving Soap -- Famous in Japan

The LUSH D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap is nothing like I’ve ever tried before.  When I opened this up for the first time I expected it to be almost mousse like in texture, and that it would be runny, messy and get everywhere.   In fact, it is a solid soap, but not how you would expect.  Usually, traditional soaps are incredibly drying and can make your skin squeak like a plate fresh out of the dishwasher.  Not D’Fluff.

D’Fluff feels soft and creamy – it’s almost like you’re scooping ice cream out of a tub.  It is packed with skin loving ingredients such as coconut oil, glycerine, cocoa butter and rosehip oil.  It also has an addictive and unique scent.  Others claim it is strawberries and cream, whereas to my nose it is a subtle strawberry musk, almost exotic.  D’Fluff is also part of LUSH’s self preserving range which means they do not have to rely on preservatives such as parabens or other irritants.

In the interest of my blog I tried D’Fluff on my legs, my underarms and my bikini area.   I found D’Fluff to be messy and time consuming to use under my arms, and didn’t make that much of a noticeable difference compared to usual.   I didn’t have any irritation around the bikini line when using D’Fluff (thank god!) but again, it was messy and time consuming.  Out of the three ways I used it, I preferred to use D’Fluff on my legs, as that is where I see the best results.  My legs are not the prettiest; they easily get irritated and are often dry and flaky (urgh indeed!).  When I use D’Fluff to shave my legs, they feel so soft and smooth and they look a lot healthier too.  I notice that when I use D’Fluff, I get a closer shave.  I’ve noticed that regrowth is not as fast as usual, which means I can enjoy smooth legs for longer.

D’Fluff is not a necessity to me, it’s more of a luxury, “treat yo self!” product.  It’s not something I reach for every single time I shave but it’s nice to have it in the cupboard for when I feel like pushing the boat out.

Have you tried LUSH D’Fluff Shaving Soap?  If not, would it be something you would try?

    I looked at that when I was on the lush website, it didn’t seem like something I’d be originally interested in but that might be great for summer!

    I love D’Fluff, it’s the only shaving cream / thing that stops me getting those horrible red bumps on my legs.

    I’ve always wanted to try this! I epilate my legs, but shave everywhere else so thought I’d try it on my ‘everywhere else’ bits but think I’ll give it a miss if it’s awkward to use! I might see if I can pick up a small pot though for when I need to quickly shave my legs if I don’t have time to epilate because my legs get so irritated after shaving.

    Despite it not really being key to the whole shaving your legs it does sound like a nice little pampering treat :)

    I love the smell of this, but don’t think I’d buy it often

    I love De Fluff, and have been missing it since I ran out. It’s just a little expensive and I’m lazy!

    For some reason, my Bloglovin has unfollowed half of my feed. I thought I hadn’t been seeing your posts! I am now back following you – hurrah!
