Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb

What is that odd new bath bomb LUSH Cosmetics invented? Oh yes, Granny Takes A Dip! A disk shape with four rings looks unusual compared to other sphere bath bombs. It reminds me of tree rings.

AROMA: I immediately smell Sweet Tarts candy when sniffing Granny Takes A Dip. It has a sweet punch but also a sour, citrus-y punch. It is a nice escape from a strong floral, sweet, or organic scent. It truly is a unique aroma compared to usual LUSH smells.

EFFECTS: Granny Takes A Dip decides to sit quietly in the bath water. It does not fizz or twirl. It does not explode with glitter or confetti. Instead, it chills while floating around in the same path. I liked the idea of the four colors. But I did not enjoy my murky purple bath water once it fizzed out.

INGREDIENTS: Like all bath bombs, this product contains a variety of safe synthetics and a hint of natural products – black pepper oil, lemon oil (very strong), ginger oil, and gardenia extract. Granny Takes A Dip is NOT vegan.

UNIQUE SHAPE: LUSH really played on this new shape. They used it in store fronts and even as a graphic in their new catalog – Fresh Matters. My friend, Allie Zoll, visited Ireland and took a picture of the store front above. I also saw a similar look in a LUSH while exploring France. Such a cool idea! The graphic from the catalog showcases how long each LUSH product lasts without using the usual and expected bar graph or pie chart. 

What do you think of Granny Takes A Dip? Do you think it is worth all of the hype? Will the new LUSH products be able to make it on a “Best Sellers” list?

Speaking of the LUSH Spring Collection… mine just came in the mail and I used the Golden Egg tonight in my bath! It was PHENOMENAL! Be on the look out for that haul and review coming soon! This catalog also came out around the time the Valentines Collection and #signoflove media campaign started. Here were my three favorite Valentine layouts:

Overall, I really loved this LUSH Times! It was not much different from the Fall 2013 LUSH Times. This one appeared in stores on February 1st! The day I went to the LUSH Spa! I saw them setting them out and knew I had to grab one! Have you looked at this LUSH Times yet?!
