What does the product description say?

What does the product description say?
"It's in good company too; there's ceraferment extract (a rare bio ingredient) to boost your natural renewal processes; a form of retinol and the ultra-brightening 4MSK ingredient, which inhibits excessive melanin production to prevent dark spots."
WIMJ summary

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

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: glycyrrhiza glabra root extract.

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.

What does the product description say?
"Clé de Peau Beauté La Crème 30ml Clé de Peau Beauté's equivalent to beauty sleep, La Crème is an intensive night-time moisturiser that aids your skin's innate ability to regenerate, helping you wake to an impressively smooth, supple and luminous finish."
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, glycine.

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: cera microcristallina, dimethicone.
