What does the product description say?
"Available in five shades that will leave lips feeling moisturized, protected and refreshingly scented."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: ricinus communis seed oil, octyldodecyl neopentanoate.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

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.
