What does the product description say?
"It adheres to skin and improves elasticity, reducing fine lines and wrinkles."
WIMJ summary

This product contains adenosine. 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?
"Hyaluronic acid helps retain moisture for more deeply hydrated skin and an added plumping effect."
WIMJ summary

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

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 (camellia sinensis leaf extract) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
Used to create a nice product texture and help delivery of other ingredients. Might be somewhat helpful in attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
5.6% - 8.4%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
3.2% - 4.8%
A preservative
2% - 3%
Helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin and improves the product texture
2% - 3%
Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
1.5% - 2.3%
A plant extract that might have some anti-inflammatory properties, but solid evidence is lacking. It can be irritating
1.3% - 1.9%
A type of silicone that helps soften the upper layer of the skin and create a nice product texture
1.2% - 1.8%
A silicone that helps improve the product texture and spreadability. Can absord oil creating a short-term mattifying effect on the skin
0.95% - 1.45%
Maintains the texture of skincare products. Allows the product to spread evenly. Helps oil and water mix together
0.6% - 1.35%

Might help improve cell turnover and reduce inflammation in skin. One study shows that the ingredients might be able to stimulate collagen production in skin
0.1% - 0.45%
Stabilizes the product formulation
0.1% - 0.45%
Helps oil and water mix together
0.1% - 0.45%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin. Naturally present in skin. Typically has large molecule size unless advertised otherwise on the product label. Helps support skin's barrier function and may help to reduce inflammation
