The Moo Reviews | Lush Granny Takes a Dip


For anyone who doesn’t know, The Moo is my five year old who has an animal obsession but also likes to shop. She loves buying clothes, but her favourite place to bankrupt me is Lush. She loves products which entertain, or smell nice, create bubbles, have a colour…in fact the number of times she uses the word “product” is a bit scary for a five year old, and made me think she might be a budding beauty blogger. When I suggested she does a monthly review on Mother City Mom she was all over the idea like a rash…so here is the first Moo Review. This month I asked her a few questions about her thoughts on Granny Takes a Dip ballistic from Lush, and here are her answers.

Why did you pick this one?
Because it was colourful and big.
It’s like as big as my head!
That’s true. What do you think of the smell? What does it smell like?
Like vanilla and cocktail.
What the hell does cocktail smell like?
(For the record, it smells like ginger, pepper and lemon. I love lemon, so I really like the scent of this. However it is quite subtle in the bath, not a very strong scent like Think Pink or Twilight have for instance.)

Granny Takes a Dip
What happened when you put it in the water?
It was My Little Pony water!! It made rainbows and it made the letter M for Madison.
(That’s a blatant lie, the bit about the M, just so you know)
What else did it do?
It made purple water. I turned purple (another fib btw) and it made my skin very, very, very, very soft. Guess what my new favourite bath bomb is?
This one!!
What do you think was missing or could have been added to make it better?
Yes, and cupcakes. So it can be sweet and I can drink the bath water.

I did explain that that would be unhygienic, but apparently she does it anyhow… This ballistic foams for quite a long time and does in fact product rainbow foam. It definitely joins my top favourites along with Dragon’s Egg and Lord of Misrule. It’s a pretty standard ballistic price at R44.50.

Moo will be back next month with another Moo Review and is apparently quite excited to “be on people’s iPads” so if you like the series you can leave her a comment!

    Hello Moo. Well done on a brilliant job for your first review, I also love Lush and agree that more things need to smell like cupcakes. Rainbow baths sound like such fun. I’m excited to read more Lush reviews from you. Have fun bankrupting Mom ๐Ÿ™‚ x

    Great review Moo! I’m looking forward to all your lush reviews. I think sugar and cupcakes make everything better. I’m definitely getting granny takes a dip now, I want rainbow water too

      It is a good one! It settles to purple water but the actual foam that spreads out from it is a rainbow! Very awesome. Moo made a good choice picking this one ๐Ÿ™‚ Also I expected it to cost a lot more because it’s quite big but it was about the same price.

    Loved this, Bronwyn! Looking forward to reading all Moo’s reviews! I love Granny Takes A Dip, it’s my new favourite bath bomb! x

    • Mother City Mom says:

      Thank you! I thought if you want a totally honest opinion why not ask a five year old? Tact is not their thing. Haha. I also love it, definitely in my top two if not my favourite. I think if they added glitter in one ring and popping candy in another ring it might be the best thing EVER INVENTED. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mother City Mom says:

      I’m glad you liked it! You do know she has no idea what a cocktail actually is and that it smells nothing like cocktails right? Haha. It is an awsome ballistic though, and it does remind me of My Little Pony rainbow manes, she has that point quite correct. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Mother City Mom says:

      Thank you! I know Moo is very excited to get these comments and to do more reviews. It is gigantic, I couldn’t believe it was the same price. I thought it would be very expensive like the Easter ones. Haha, maybe it will make the letter C for Chicara…you never know maybe Moo was actually telling the truth ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a great job Moo! Definitely want to read more of your reviews! Bronwyn, would be great to have these questions asked in a video! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was laughing out loud and read it out to JP as well. Moo is super cute! XXX

    • Mother City Mom says:

      Thanks Charlene! Moo is so excited to get all these comments ๐Ÿ™‚ I had to ask the questions a few times over a period of time to get answers out of her, but I could try a video for one of the Moo reviews, definitely! ๐Ÿ™‚
