What does the product description say?
"DHC CoQ10 Milk moisturiser promotes a firmer, smoother complexion whilst also helping fighting the visible signs of premature ageing."
WIMJ summary

This product contains serine. This ingredient 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?
"This lightweight, velvety Face Milk moisturiser from cult Japanese beauty mavens DHC, has been created with a blend of skin-loving botanicals, hydrating Olive Oil, skin-plumping collagen and moisture-binding sodium hyaluronate."
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, sodium hyaluronate.

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: squalane, olea europaea fruit oil.

This product contains antioxidants (ubiquinone) that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. By doing so, they can lessen the damage the skin gets from the UV light (sun).
