What does the product description say?
"Acacia pacifies skin suffering from cellular fatigue and loss of elasticity, helping to detoxify and fight against puffiness and dark circles that makes eyes look tired."
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.This ingredient - butyrospermum parkii butter - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

What does the product description say?
"An ultra-moisturising cocktail of Olive, Pomegranate, Honey and Hyaluronic Acid penetrates skin, leaving it plump and juicy; a natural blend of minerals enhances tone; and the brand’s patented Propolis extract drives the protective properties of antioxidants to shield against external aggressors."
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, sodium hyaluronate.

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: butyrospermum parkii butter, helianthus annuus seed oil.

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