I bought this LUSH shaving cream because I wanted to be as smooth as Prince. I’m lying. Only partially lying. I bought it because I couldn’t resist the thought of “triple orange blossom”.
The formula: It contains fair trade cocoa butter to moisturize. It contains rosewater, almond oil and witch hazel to “leave your pores feeling clean and free of shaving debris”. You”re supposed to apply this and leave it on for 3-5 minutes before shaving. Shave and rinse razor frequently. Full list of ingredients here.
The fragrance: It’s not the triple helping of orange blossom I was hoping it for. It’s a “green” orange blossom. The orange blossom is more like orange blossom water mixed with vetiver and cocoa butter. It smells good but not as good as I wanted it to smell.
My experience: It’s a really thick cream I find that it clogs my razor badly. Like so badly, it’s almost impossible to rinse out of the razor. Razors are too expensive to be dealing with this. Prince will make any razor a disposable razor after one use. It leaves a film on my skin which I don’t mind. It’s the film left on the tub that I can’t stand. It’s a shaving cream but I still had bumps, razor burn and all of that stuff. Moral of the story, I should stick to fragrance free shaving products. I can not imagine a guy with sensitive skin using this on their face. I also can’t imagine anyone actually liking the feel of this on their face. Legs and pits are different, I know I wouldn’t want this film on my face.
As you know, LUSH products are hit or miss. Prince was a miss for me. It may not be for you. Will I buy it again? No. It’s not for me. If I want smooth legs, I’ll shave with an unscented cream and rub luscious cocoa butter all over them afterwards. It’s probably cheaper too.
This product comes in 2 sizes with prices ranging from $16-$26 at LUSH.
