Lush D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap Review

This was provided to me by a brand for review but all opinions expressed are my own

Lush D'Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap

I’m not one from venturing out of shaving cream but Lush D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap is divine! I’m really not the girl to shave with soap or conditioner or lotion! Give me a can of foaming shaving cream and call it a day. My sister on the other hand is all about shaving lotions and using hair conditioner etc…personally I find that stuff clogs up my razor so I avoid it.

And fact…Lush D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap clogs up my razor too but I MIGHT be able to overlook that because I LOVE this stuff!

Granted, Lush isn’t new to the shaving soap and lotion craze as they have had a few releases here and there plus Prince is a long standing shaving lotion the brand has carried since like forevers! I do like D’Fluff considerably better than Prince due to the fluffy, mousse-like texture!

Now…problem…if you have an expensive razor habit well, D’Fluff is going to piss you off. There’s no delicate way to put it. I find it clogs up my razor in the worst way possible and you need to spend a little time rinsing it all off. I suggest dedicating a single razor hair for use with D’Fluff if you have plans to use your regular foaming shaving cream as well! Hot water, a lot of whisking, drying, more hot water, more whisking around in a basin of water, and I still had a good deal of the product embedded into the blades of my razor so be prepared for this to happen.

Lush D'Fluff

Outside of this issue, D’Fluff is GLORIOUS! I like to use it on dry skin but of course, it can be easily used wet as well. Used wet it does lather up so no one will blame you if you double up and use it as a body wash as well as a shave lotion. The texture starts house like a whipped up mousse but it melts down a bit once it touches skin. I find I get the closet shave when using it on dry skin versus wet. It really does an excellent job of providing moisture to drier skin and a smoother working area to run your blade across. No prickly skin here! Just a super smooth shave!

Not don’t get too excited as although D’Fluff is PACKED with strawberries, yes real ones, it also contains other ingredients such as rosehip and coconut oil as well as egg whites and cocoa butter the fragrance isn’t quite a fruity, strawberry scent. No synthetic plastic strawberries here! This has more of a fresh “Lushie” strawberry smell so you’re getting not only a strawberry back note but a slight sourness as well. Sour probably sounds terribly unappealing but I promise it works! Plus if you love Lush scents in general you should have an issue with the way this smells!

Needless to say I need a larger pot of Lush D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap! My under arms have never had this close a shave! If you want a close shave with a smooth, hydrating finish I’d recommend D’Fluff to get the job done.

Loves it!

    I can’t use traditional canned shave products and have been using a more organic less filler one that also dulled my blades some. I have done a soak in rubbing alcohol after a shower and it really helped declog the blade I seemed to get more use out of them the when I didn’t do that.

    Hope this doesn’t make anybody wince, but I shave my legs and underarms dry: no water, no cream or lotion. I’ve done this since I was a teen. I’ve used disposable and electric razors as well. I just can’t go too fast, otherwise, my legs will burn something fierce!

    Oh, I’m so excited to try this! Went to Lush on the weekend but sadly they were all out. They said it was so popular. I did ask if you could use this dry as I do feel that does give the closest shave when using cream products, but the girl hadn’t heard of anyone doing it so thanks for clearing that up. I use EOS shaving cream and that’s how I use it. I like how you pointed out that its not a fake strawberry scent as I hate that! I also like how it doubles up as a soap, time saver!

      I think it works best try! I feel like I get a closer shave when I use it dry 😀

  • Rachel

    They are sold out online! And my lush store didn’t have anymore. Disappointed because I really wanted to try it

  • Olivia

    I LOVE this stuff! I just reviewed it on my blog as well. I didn’t have any razor clogging issues, though. Once you make a nice milky lather, it’s pretty thin in consistency. Bummed because I ran out already!

    While I enjoyed reading your review, I just want to point out that you have several grammatical errors. Like ‘house’ where ‘out’ should be. ‘The texture starts out….’ By the way, I’m just letting you know in a good friendly nature :). So please don’t get upset. Writing long field research papers 20 or more pages in length I have found reading backwards for editing works the best. You really catch every little thing that doesn’t fit. And I love this product as well. Pretty much every shaving lotion or cream I’ve used has clogged my razors though, so I personally was prepared ahead of time since I don’t like putting synthetic harsh chemicals on my legs as it makes them irritated.

      sorry about that vanessa I’m constantly multitasking and sometimes I def make errors! Glad you’re a lover of D’fluff too 🙂
