What does the product description say?
"Vitamin C Pro-Collagen Brightening Serum"
From product name
WIMJ summary

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

These ingredients in the product can also be helpful, even though there is less evidence for their effectiveness: ascorbyl glucoside, retinyl palmitate.

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.

What does the product description say?
"This brightening Vitamin A & C serum delivers skin enhancing benefits of pure stabilized L-Ascorbic Acid and Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, in conjunction with Vitamins E, Arbutin, Bearberry, Emblica, and Ubiquinone, to achieve improved skin texture and tone resulting in healthier looking skin."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate

The following ingredient (ingredients) in this product might be helpful, but there is no evidence to confirm that it actually can help even out the skin tone: arbutin, ascorbyl glucoside, retinyl palmitate.

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.

"Aids in improving skin texture."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: dimethiconol, cyclopentasiloxane.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).
