What does the product description say?
"Powerful patent pending antioxidant blend of white, red and Green Tea extracts combined with Goji Berry, Pomegranate and Grapeseed Extracts help to neutralize free radicals, protect skin from environmental toxins and combat the visible signs of premature aging."
WIMJ summary

This product contains vitis vinifera seed 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.

"Detoxifying Lemon Peel Extract has been added to rejuvenate and increase the luster of tired skin, while Bearberry Root, Mulberry Root, Licorice Extract and Gigawhite act as natural lightening agents to help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (glycine soja seed extract, glycyrrhiza glabra root extract, punica granatum extract) that could help reduce hyperpigmentation (for example, post-acne marks or age spots) in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

"Fortified with Lactic Acid, the rejuvenating cream gently eliminates dead skin cells to allow Sweet Almond and Shea Butter to be better absorbed for optimum levels of moisture and hydration."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

"June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer"
From product name
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: glycerin, butylene glycol.

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: dimethicone, butylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate.

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (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).

The following ingredients - punica granatum extract also can have an antioxidant effect, but there is less evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin.
