What does the product description say?
"Used in combination with 11 other clinically proven actives, including peony, summer snowflake, gold seaweed, ribose, and resveratrol, this revolutionary serum prevents fine lines and wrinkles by defending skin against damaging infrared and blue light, free radicals, and pollution."
WIMJ summary

This product contains resveratrol. This ingredient might be able to help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness, but there is not enough evidence that it actually works.

WIMJ summary

This product can help improve hydration of the skin with the two types of ingredients.

The first type is called “humectants”:
these ingredients help attract water. When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. The following ingredients in this product do the job: glycerin, methyl gluceth-20.

This product also contains ingredients called “occlusives”. They help reduce the speed with which our skin loses moisture to the outside environment. These ingredients also help soften the upper layer of the skin, so it feels less tight and nicer to the touch. The following ingredients in this product do the job: glycosaminoglycans, dicaprylyl carbonate.
