What does the product description say?
"A vitamin C complex, featuring L-Ascorbic acid, works over time to ease discolouration and create a more uniform, even skin tone, while also providing powerful antioxidant protection to guard against environmental damage."
WIMJ summary

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

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.

"DCL C-Scape High Potency Body Lotion A luxurious body lotion formulated with an innovative vitamin C complex, DCL’s C-Scape High Potency Body Lotion not only deeply nourishes skin, it brightens and exfoliates it to leave it soft, smooth and beautifully even."
WIMJ summary

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: lactic acid.

What does the product description say?
"DCL’s proprietary silanol technology helps to stimulate collagen production and strengthen skin’s structural components to improve elasticity, while advanced emollients rehydrate to sooth and moisturise all skin types, even those that are severely dry or struggling with eczema, psoriasis and keratosis pilaris (chicken skin)."
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: acer saccharum sap extract, allantoin.

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: phenyl trimethicone, cholesterol.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: panthenol, urea
