Sunday Soak - Lush, Granny Takes A Dip

Bath time again, and I'd been looking forward to using this ace looking thing for a little while now!

As well as the rather fabulous array of bright colours, Granny Takes A Dip is a bit of an eyecatcher due to its unusual shape - forgoing the more traditional round ball shaped bath bomb, this ones comes as a pretty unique disk, with the blue, orange and green circles encased in a outer ring and base of pink. 

I couldn't resist putting it on it's side edge to see how far I could roll it before it hit the water!

When it does is starts releasing all the different colours as the water hits them, providing quite an impressive colour show before the water finally settles down into a bright fuschia. It's definitely one of the brightest bath products I've come across, from Lush or anyone else! 

The scent of this one was derived from lemon oil (to boost your mood!) with ginger and pepper for a really sweet warm fragrance - the result is cheerful and comforting - really gorgeous!

I know Granny has become a firm favourite with Lush fans since it first arrived on the scene earlier this year, and I can definitely see why! It's cute retro look, mad pyschedelic in-bath colourings and warming aroma definitely have high appeal - plus at £3.25 it's big enough to split in two if so desired, making it pretty good value for money!

If it did have a flaw it's that it just doesn't have as much of a skin-softening impact as I would have liked - I'm all about the pretty colours but if I can get a good moisture-boost out of a bath too, I;m doubly happy!

Still, no real complaints here - Granny is a good un!
