Lush "Granny Takes a Dip" Bath Bomb Review

This post was meant to go live on Friday but after a technology 'mare and time slipping away, here we are on Tuesday, oops!
Bath ballistics are the one product that really define Lush as a company, when you think of one, you think of the other. Personally, they have never been one of my favourites types of product sold in the store, however, there is no denying that they are a unique, exciting product that sets Lush apart from other more mainstream brands.

Granny Takes a Dip is one of the most recent offerings to be released. An amazingly bright tie-die effect bath bomb that is scented with ginger, pepper and lemon, Granny Takes a Dip is an wonderfully uplifting choice for summer. The blend of oils is designed to be perfect for lifting your mood, and giving your muscles that warm, relaxed feeling, without putting you to sleep and I found that the slight spicy kick took the edge off any over sweetness there my have otherwise been.
It swirled around the water, fizzing away fairly slowly, leaving a beautiful rainbow trail of colours in its wake, and due to the addition of a little cream of tartar, also left soft, foamy bubbles as it melted away. If you enjoy long lasting bath bombs that take their time to fizzle out then this is a good choice, and I think children would also enjoy the theatre of it. Because there was a fairly high concentration of pink colouring in this bath bomb I did expect a bit of staining on the bath but was happy to find that there was none at all.

In summation, I would say that Granny Takes a Dip has probably been one of my favourite bath bombs, and at £3.25 it is definitely one I would pick up again as a treat. It isn't on par with the likes of Dragons Egg per say in terms of the spectacle side of things, but in my opinion, it definitely smells better!

What do you think of Granny Takes a Dip. Have you tried it yet? Which is your current favourite bath bomb from Lush?
