Formula review

Promise
What does the product description say?
"Its formula contains Alpine Rose Native Cells enriched with an essential mineral complex to preserve the skin's fundamental mechanisms with antioxidant, anti-radical and oxygenating actions."
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 - copper gluconate, zinc gluconate - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (copper gluconate, zinc gluconate) that could help reduce hyperpigmentation (for example, post-acne marks or age spots) in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

What does the product description say?
"Rich in over-active detoxifying, moisturizing and energizing ingredients, this refreshing aqua primer protects the skin from the stresses of urban life."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": glycerin, propylene glycol.

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. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).
