What does the product description say?
"The unique formula harnesses level 15 SCA Technology – which stands for Secretion of Cryptomphalus Aspersa, a type of snail – an age-defying fluid that contains growth factors and glycoproteins to effectively absorb and heal damage from the sun, minimising the appearance of wrinkles, age spots and discolouration for a more even tone."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness because it contains niacinamide.

These ingredients in the product can also be helpful, even though there is less evidence for their effectiveness: 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid.

Keep in mind that it typically takes at least 6 weeks to notice any results because the changes that are needed to improve fine lines and elasticity happen in the deeper layers of the skin. No topical anti-aging product can “erase” wrinkles or fully reverse signs of aging.

WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid, niacinamide

Keep in mind that you would need to apply any topical skincare targetted at hypigmentation consistently for a couple of months to get a result. No topical skincare product can help get rid of hyperpigmentation (including post-acne marks and age spots) instantly.

"Fortified with Niacinamide and Sodium Hyaluronate, the lightweight fluid delivers intensive hydration alongside essential vitamins and antioxidants, working to combat free radical damage and improve overall skin texture."
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: fructose, 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: squalane, caesalpinia spinosa gum.

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