Fulton & Roark 2-in-1 Shampoo + Body Wash
Lather this elixir into your skin and hair, and you’ll be invigorated by rich notes of mint and rosemary, rising through the steam of a hot shower. Within minutes of drying off, you’ll smell light notes of cedar and amber. A precise formula leaves your skin clean and moisturized without drying out your hair, and vice versa. If you hate having a shower shelf overflowing with products, or if you enjoy convenience but don’t want to skimp on luxury, Fulton & Roark’s 2-in-1 Shampoo + Body Wash is for you.
