The fluffy stuff

Boys can be sensitive and sweet, and those boys might like D’Fluff Strawberry Shaving Soap from Lush.D-fluff_Lush

But it’s also designed for girls too, and smells rather lovely.

The Lush experts have whisked up this 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
