The Granny Takes A Dip Bubble Bar was released back in 2015 as a Lush Oxford Street, flagship store exclusive. Since its original release the Granny Takes A Dip bubble bar is now available everywhere.
Prior to the release of the Granny Takes A Dip bubble bar, it was actually a bath bomb. (Click here for my Granny Takes A Dip Bath Bomb review)
Last year, Lush decided to retire the bath bomb version making way for other new products. I do miss the Granny Takes A Dip bath bomb however the bubble bar is a somewhat worthy replacement.
The Granny Takes A Dip bubble bar shares its scent with the retired bath bomb. For the bath bomb super-fans this made the blow of taking it away a little softer.
As you can see from the photos the bubble bar is very bright and cheery. Its scent really is unique, packed with lemon, ginger and pepper oil it’s both zingy and spicy. Comparing the bath bomb and the bubble bar I find that the bubble bar is a tad more refreshing in the bath tub.
In the above picture I am about to use half of a Granny Takes A Dip bubble bar for one bath.
Half of it makes plenty of bubbles, I’d actually go as far as to say that you could easily get 4 fairly decent baths out of just one bubble bar.
I am always honest in my reviews, I do like the Granny Takes A Dip bubble bar however I feel that the bath bomb was just that little bit better.
With the bubble bar you still get the full effect of its beautiful scent, it just isn’t as visually theatrical in the water. I didn’t realise until I had used my very last Granny Takes A Dip bath bomb quite how fond of the exciting colours I was.
My skin after using the bubble bar was equally as soft and refreshed as the bath bomb used to leave me.
I know quite a lot of people have pointed out that the colour of the water after using the bubble bar is rather dull. I actually disagree with this, although it’s not quite on par as others for brightness sometimes something a little more gentle is a good thing.
I have got through several Granny Takes A Dip bubble bars since its release last year so it’s more than obvious how I feel about it. It’s the perfect accompaniment for an exciting Lush bath cocktail.
