The Gentleman's Shower

I'm not much of a morning person. The quicker I make my morning routine, the more time I can spend sleeping in. With this handsome bottle of C.O. Bigelow Bay Rum hair and body wash, I simply squirt a drop in my hand and rub the suds from head to toe. No messing around with other bottles or steps in the routine. And while you'd rightly assume most two-in-one products don't accomplish both jobs at 100 percent, this one's different. The all-in-one lather cleans and strengthens hair with panthenol (a derivative of vitamin B5) while natural ingredients like aloe, castor oil and cucumber moisturize and condition skin. It rinses away easily without leaving that filmy feeling found with some soaps—what it does leave is a subtle scent of bay rum. First concocted by C.O.Bigelow's chemists over a century ago in their New York apothecary, the brand's popular bay rum fragrance blends real bay oil, citrus and spices like clove for a warm, classic scent that's manly but not overpowering. What's more, because you only use a small squirt, the bottle will last you a really long time. Or do as I've done and split a bottle between home and the gym.
