Making Shaving Bearable - Lush D'Fluff

Why is shaving such a chore? It only adds an extra 5 minutes to the shower but I spend more time complaining about shaving my legs than I do actually shaving them. Not only do I hate the actual process but I also hate the way my legs feel once I’m out the shower. My legs feel dry, irritated and itchy until I slather on the richest moisturiser in my bathroom. And sometimes I’ve caught a bit of psoriasis so I leave the bathroom looking like there was a massacre in my shower (ok, I may be exaggerating slightly with that one). Recently I was in Lush and I stopped to smell D’Fluff Shaving Soap - oh my goodness, it’s beautiful. It smells like strawberries mixed with the typical Lush smell. I started speaking to the sales assistant and I told her about my dry legs and hatred for shaving them, she explained that not only would D'Fluff stop any irritation, it would also help keep my legs hydrated with the cocoa butter and would ultimately help make shaving that bit more bearable. Although I’ve always been aware of the type of razor I use, I’ve never been overly interested in the type of shaving gel, I’ve generally just went for whichever one is on offer, so I was keen to try something a little different.

For the first few shaves I found it very odd that it didn’t go into a lather - I was pretty paranoid that it was just running off my leg. If you’re used to something that foams up, although it feels weird at first it’s definitely worth persevering. Shaving felt smoother and post-shower my legs didn’t feel anywhere near as irritated or dry. I can’t see me spending £5.75 for 70g or £9.95 for 150g on a regular basis but if my skin is feeling particularly dry or irritated during the winter I’d certainly pick this up again. 


Have you tried D’Fluff? Do you have any shaving tips?

  2. It looks so fluffy! I might find myself playing with it instead of using it for shaving...well, at least, I hope not! ;)

    1. Haha! It's actually a really odd texture, although it looks fluffy it's really creamy. x

  3. I never use shaving cream, just rely on the moisture blocks on the razor! But this does look really cool and I love me some lush so I will have to try! x
