What does the product description say?
"Fermented Pumpkin and Acerola Cherry provide the skin with AHAs which brighten skin and remove dullness."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

What does the product description say?
"Fermented Rice Water and Green Tea Seed Oil maintain the skin's hydration for smoother, healthier results."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: helianthus annuus seed oil, octyldodecanol.

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).
