What does the product description say?
"To increase youthful plumpness, hexapeptide works to diminish the appearance of fine lines and helps add definition, while plantago stem cell extract helps reduce the look of age spots."
WIMJ summary for anti-aging

This product contains acetyl hexapeptide-38, acetyl hexapeptide-8, n-prolyl palmitoyl tripeptide-56 acetate. These ingredients 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.

What does the product description say?
"The Chantecaille Bio Lifting Serum + can be used prior to a moisturiser in the morning and the evening."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

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

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).

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl hexapeptide-38, acetyl hexapeptide-8, n-prolyl palmitoyl tripeptide-56 acetate

WIMJ summary for anti-oxidation

This product contains antioxidants (imperata cylindrica root extract) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
