What does the product description say?
"Enriched with Grape Stem cells, Seaweed, Green and White Teas and Hyaluronic Acid, the active serum gets to work on fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles; its brightening and hydrating properties help to energise skin around the eyes, alleviating tell-tale signs of age and tiredness for more illuminated looking skin."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": glycerin, isomalt.

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. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).

WIMJ summary

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

The following ingredients - ilex paraguariensis leaf extract also can have an antioxidant effect, but there is less evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin.
