What does the product description say?
"The masque is paraben free and suitable for all skin types, with its unmatched concentration of state of the art ingredients that help to rejuvenate, regenerate and revitalize dull, ageing skin."
WIMJ summary

This product contains acetyl hexapeptide-8, acetyl octapeptide-3, arabidopsis thaliana extract, dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate, palmitoyl tripeptide-1, palmitoyl tripeptide-38, vitis vinifera seed extract. These ingredients 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?
"The formula also contains a natural marine-based tightening complex that smoothes, hydrates and leaves the skin looking more radiant."
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: algae extract, biosaccharide gum-1.

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: caprylic/capric triglyceride, dimethicone.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl hexapeptide-8, acetyl octapeptide-3, dipeptide diaminobutyroyl benzylamide diacetate, linoleic acid, palmitoyl tripeptide-1, palmitoyl tripeptide-38

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (superoxide dismutase, 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).
