Fictionary: Fignition

Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.

I love a fresh, non-perfumey shower gel, especially after a workout. My current fave, The Body Shop‘s Earth Lovers Fig & Rosemary Shower Gel, made its way into my lifestyle via a CEW Awards gift bag (gift bag delights are always unexpected gems) and it has won me over. Why? The sweetness of the fig scent is tempered by the herbal freshness of the rosemary and it simply is, to quote the eloquent R. Kelly, the remix to Fignition (hot and fresh out the kitchen).

No, I’m not trying to be rude, but pretty scent, I’m feeling you. This foamy-lathering crisp wash is 100% biodegradable and sulfate-, paraben- and colorant-free. At $10, it’s mid-priced, but a little goes a long way on your mesh pouf. And do you love the simple, yet beautiful design of the rosemary- and fig-adorned slim bottle?

Can I get a toot toot? Can I get a beep beep? R Kelly (whom I refer to as simply R) would like one as well.
