A few weeks ago, I hit up a Lush store to look at products and ended up grabbing a sample of the Dirty Shaving Cream. I finally got my boyfriend to try it shaving, and here are his thoughts on the product! (Note, he's forgotten that he's also tried the Art of Shaving line, lol!) I think at this point he may be a better blogger than me! Haha, please share what you think of his post or this product! :)

Aroma: The scent is a milky herbal concoction. The scent can definitely be considered suitable for men and women.
Use: I have primarily used shaving foams since I started shaving as a teen. Typical shaving foams like Gillette and Barbasol, nothing fancy or different, boring I know. About a year ago Joyce convinced me to try a new shaving product when we came across C.O. Bigelow’s selection of men’s shaving products. This introduced me to benefits of trying nicer shaving products. That history aside, this Lush Dirty Shaving Cream is my first foray into the realm of shaving creams, and I must say I should have tried them a long time ago!
To highlight a couple of the major benefits I discovered: A little bit of product goes a long way, I was testing this with a sample we got from a Lush location. The razor seems to glide over the skin with less friction, as if the blades are hydroplaning over the skin. The herbal and oatmeal ingredients did a good job soothing and moisturizing my face both during and after the shave. Like I mentioned above, since the scent is suitable for both men and women I’m guessing I can share this product with my girlfriend, save money and reduce dreaded bathroom clutter.
Conclusion: My face almost always gets irritated from shaving, this cream dramatically reduced that irritation. I was left with a smooth fresh shave. I plan on purchasing a full size version of this product as soon as my current shaving foam is gone. (I might take some pictures to illustrate the difference between this product has on my skin compared to my current shaving foam.)
