there is a very limited selection of products in the sundry store on board. you may be disappointed in the choices you have, if you have a choice at all.
As for leaving it behind, it will get tossed when the steward cleans the cabin.
For what it is worth, I collect the small trial/travel size of products thorughout the year and use those during my cruise. Two trial/travel size of body lotion or shampoo take up less space than a full-sized bottle of either. This way, if you use all of one bottle, you can just chug it.
Personal care stores like Bath & Body Works alway has great quality products in the small trial/travel size.
Or you can just purchase the one or two items you must have and pack it. I don't know if depending on the ship to carry the items you want is a good idea. Plus, their products are prohibitively expensive.
