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.)
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?
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!
