What does the product description say?
"Enriched with Glycerin, the formula helps to support the skin’s natural regeneration processes, rebuilding and reinforcing the barriers to fill out the appearance of fine lines while smoothing the surface."
WIMJ summary

This product contains centella asiatica extract. 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?
"Also enriched with Panthenol, the formula plumps the skin with moisture, revealing a radiant and supple complexion."
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: allantoin, betaine.

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: helianthus annuus seed oil, helianthus annuus seed oil unsaponifiables.

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