What does the product description say?
"Visibly tighten, firm, and lift to help reduce the look of puffiness and aging."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain ingredients that are able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or help with skin elasticity, but it can improve the look of the skin temporarily through moisturization. Well-moisturized skin might also be able to repair the sun damage better.These ingredients - hyaluronic acid, lycium barbarum fruit extract - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

This ingredient lycium barbarum fruit extract might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin and help it fight off some of the sun damage.

What does the product description say?
"A cushiony, hydrating eye cream with potent antioxidants that instantly brightens dark circles, tightens, and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles."
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: betaine, glycerin.

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: helianthus annuus seed oil, squalane.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: panthenol
