What does the product description say?
"A network of sugars and bionymph peptide stem cell extracts provides instant protection against soot and urban dust – smoothing skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines while prolonging the longevity of your make up – while the high water content ensures skin looks refreshed, dewy and natural."
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 - nicotiana sylvestris leaf cell culture - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

"Future Skin Cushion Aura"
From product name
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, butylene glycol.

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: dimethicone, nicotiana sylvestris leaf cell culture.
