What does the product description say?
"Harnessing the brand’s proprietary ‘Repair & Restore’ technology – a cocktail of actives that have a 360 ̊ effect of the signs of skin ageing – the rich Confidence in your Beauty Sleep Night Cream works to gradually lessen the depth of fine lines while restoring your skin’s former firmness."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness because it contains retinyl retinoate.

These ingredients in the product can also be helpful, even though there is less evidence for their effectiveness: adenosine, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-1.

Keep in mind that it typically takes at least 6 weeks to notice any results because the changes that are needed to improve fine lines and elasticity happen in the deeper layers of the skin. No topical anti-aging product can “erase” wrinkles or fully reverse signs of aging.

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: capryloyl salicylic acid, retinyl retinoate.

What does the product description say?
"Impressively fast-absorbing, the Confidence in a Cream is enhanced with a proprietary ‘Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate’, which combines collagen, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, peptides and a super ceramide complex to immerse your skin in hydration, boost firmness, smooth uneven texture and reduce the look of pores."
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: cocos nucifera oil, dimethicone.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: ceramide ap, ceramide np, hydroxypalmitoyl sphinganine, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-1

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (cereus grandiflorus flower extract, chrysin) 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.
