Review │ Granny takes a dip Bubble bar by Lush

Today's post is a review of the Granny takes a dip bubble bar by Lush. 

I always knew there was a bath bomb called Granny takes a dip, there was a lot of hype about it around the time it came out and that continued for a while. What I didn't know though, was that lush had a bubble bar called granny takes a dip as well, it's basically the exact same as the bath bomb but in bubble bar form. I was so excited to find this out, better late than never right? I found out about this bubble bar right around the time that granny takes a dip bath bomb got discontinued and to my luck there was a bubble bar staring at me as soon as I walked into the lush store that would help heal the loss of the bath bomb. This bubble bar smells exactly the same as the bath bomb, I can't quite describe the smell but I do like it, if i remember correctly I compared the scent of the bath bomb to rubber bands and I still stand by that, it's very similar. It also looks very similar in terms of colour, this bubble bar is very very bright in contrast to the bath bomb which has very lovely colours but I would describe them as more muted than the colours in the bubble bar which are very vivid and the blue seems more purple to me. I knew as soon as I seen this bubble bar that I had to try it, how could I not? 

This bubble bar isn't any different to the others out there, it still does the same job, creates bubbles in the bath. I got 3 uses out of this bubble bar since it isn't very big in size compared to the comforter or brightside but it still does the job. I don't like a lot of bubbles in my bath so I could stretch this out over four baths. If I was to buy this bubble bar again it would be purely because it resembles the bath bomb in colour and scent. I wasn't wowed however with the scent as I felt like it didn't stick around long enough for me to get the full enjoyment out of it, it was there one minute and gone the next. I could faintly smell it when I was crumbling up into the running water but I didn't smell it whilst in the bath which was disappointing as I thought this would give me a great alternative to the Granny takes a dip bath bomb but I was mistaken. Although I would buy this again to give me a sort of nostalgic feeling to when I was using the granny takes a dip bath bomb I can't say it would be impressing scent wise. I do hope this was maybe a one time thing and that if I buy this bubble bar again I will get the full enjoyment of the scent as I have had this happen before with a bath bomm, I think this may be wishful thinking on my part. 

The bubble bar did however make the water feel amazing! It felt very silky smooth and I felt like my skin had been hydrated once I stepped out of the bath. I also felt very relaxed and calm after the bath which was nice as my day had been one of those long days I just wanted to forget. 

Overall I'm not sure that I would actually buy this again as I am a much bigger fan of the comforter as a bubble bar, that one is my overall favourite of the bubble bar so to buy this bubble bar in place of the comforter doesn't seem very logical to me. I would how ever buy this one if I had no other choice, it's good in terms of creating bubbles and it makes the water soft. At £3.65 I wouldn't say it is the most budget friendly product they have out because for less than a £1 more you can get a bubble bar which seems to be twice the size of this one and the scent lasts longer. I felt that throughout my bath the water started to look a little murky which isn't a pleasant experience at all, I much prefer my water to stay a lovely, inviting colour which I normally get from lush products. I guess everyone has their own opinions and this is mine, it's not one I'm going to buy in a hurry that's for sure. I hope that if anyone has used it, that they have had a different experience, if so then please, tell me about it! I would love to hear all about your experience with this bubble bar. 

So what do Lush say? "This ginger, pepper and lemon-scented bubble bar turns your water psychedelic and puts some colour in your life. Simply crumble underneath the running tap to create grounding, spicy bubbles. Its spicy, citrusy scent will pep you up: lemon oil boosts the mood, while ginger and pepper are warming."
