From top New York dermatologist Macrene Alexiades, this brightening, luminizing, peptide-packed body cream leaves skin rejuvenated and glowing. Inspired by her Greek roots, Alexiades used potent organic botanicals—wild olive leaf, lemon balm, pomegranate, and other extracts prized in ancient Grecian medicine—alongside 38 active ingredients, including wrinkle-targeting peptides, hydrators like hyaluronic acid and sodium lactate, and brightening amino acids. The rich, moisturizing vegan cream is refreshingly unscented and melts in on contact, and dipping into the big glass tub—in the morning or at night after a bath or shower—feels sooo indulgent.
