Double-Duty Shower Products For the Minimalist Woman
You dress in black, white and grey most days, and generally stick to clean lines and immaculate tailoring (plus denim and crisp white sneakers on weekends). Your apartment is an homage to neutral palettes and interesting—but understated—textures, and your work desk looks like an inspo shot clipped from a high-end interiors magazine. You're a minimalist through and through, so why not edit your beauty stash to reflect that sensibility, too?
Ahead, we've compiled eight indulgent products designed to offer dual (and even triple) uses that minimalists will love. They're pleasingly simple in both packaging and promise, but their multitude of benefits means they save space in your shower caddy. (A must for beauty buffs of all stripes.)

Diptyque Radiance Boosting Powder ($92)
A dry clay-based cleanser that also works to smooth skin, it's made with an assortment of powdered flowers including jasmine and rose. Mix with a small amount of water then massage into skin to cleanse, or apply with the included foam scrubbing ball to gently exfoliate.
Sans[Ceuticals] Goji Cleansing Oil ($53)
A shower oil that does away with the need for body lotion and treats keratosis pilaris, too? Bring it. Formulated with vitamin A, this milky cleanser stimulates skin repair as well as exfoliating away unwanted bumps and blemishes. Bonus: It smells like Fruit Tingles.
Caudalie Divine Scrub ($52)
Oil-based scrubs are ideal for anyone wanting to achieve silky skin with minimal effort. ("Us.") The oil in the formula means you won't have to bother smoothing on body cream post-shower to lock in moisture. Even better, it can also help dissolve away old, patchy fake tan.
Philip B Lavender Hair & Body Shampoo ($74)
The idea that a multi-purpose shampoo for hair and body could be this good is semi-outrageous. Surely it must fail on one task or the other? Nope. It leaves skin and strands equally clean (but not squeaky), and smelling like a lavender field in Provence.
Bumble and Bumble Custom Curl Conditioner ($54)
A co-wash, mask and leave-in treatment in one, think of this bad boy as the MacGyver of hair products. Designed for use on natural curls, it's packed with nourishing oils and is free from drying sulfates. We recommend keeping a tube on hand and customising the way you use it depending on how your mop is behaving.
Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil ($92)
A soothing blend of chamomile, sandalwood and vetivert, we're all about using this relaxing bath and shower oil to unwind before bed. Add a few drops to a hot bath or apply straight to your body before you jump in the shower to reap the benefits.
Dr. Jackson's Coconut Melt ($22)
By now we're all well informed of the beauty super powers of coconut oil. Use this organic version on skin, lips, cuticles, hair and body for instant softness. Keeping a jar in the shower means the formula stays liquid, and if you apply as soon as you're done you'll find it easier to smooth on.
