Mister Pompadour Shower Experience
A standard shower gets a whole new wave of freshness with the Mister Pompadour Shower Experience. The refreshing and soothing Peppermint Shampoo and Peppermint Conditioner boast a chillingly good scent but the real punch comes in the key ingredients.

All you will really notice, though, is how smooth and clean your hair feels after this shower experience.
