I’m looking for suggestions for how to get myself presentable after a moderately strenuous workout in a minimal amount of time.

I’ve started going to an early-morning spinning class that leaves me nice and sweaty. Afterward, I usually have, at most, 15 minutes to get showered, changed, and on the way to my office. It's not an optimal schedule, but it's the only one that works for me right now. But obviously, I don’t have time to follow usual morning grooming routine in the locker room.
Fortunately, I don’t have to dress up for work. I can get by on jeans and sweaters most days. I don’t wear much makeup (light foundation, eyeliner, and shadow), and I have shoulder-length hair that I don’t need to style, but I always feel a little – not smelly, but kind of blowsy for the rest of the day. I’d like suggestions for products or practices that I can use as shortcuts/substitutes to the normal shampoo, blow dry, full makeup regimen. For instance, I used to use a hair “refresher” by Aveda that they don’t appear to make anymore. I know it didn’t clean my hair, but it was enough to get me through the rest of the day without that post-workout sheen.
