Promise
What does the product description say?
"This powerful age-defying toner, enhanced with resiliency-promoting, collagen-stimulating Vitamin C, helps to firm and contour the skin."
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.

Promise
What does the product description say?
"This advanced combination of Hydrolyzed Elastin, Soluble Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid synergistically provides superior moisture-retention to visibly plump the skin."
WIMJ summary

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

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 (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 - camellia sinensis leaf extract, lycium barbarum fruit extract, punica granatum extract, sodium ascorbyl phosphate also can have an antioxidant effect, but there is less evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin.

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
4.3% - 6.4%
Used to preserve products, dissolve other ingredients and create a nice product texture
3.7% - 5.5%
A stable derivative of vitamin C. It is oil-soluble which means it is more likely to penetrate the skin compared to the pure form of vitamin C (which is water-soluble), but it is less bio-available and is way less effective in stimulating collagen and reducing wrinkles compared to the pure form of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) and its other derivatives (for example, magnesium ascorbyl phosphate). At the same time, this vitamin C derivative has been shown in studies to be effective in reducing acne, blemishes and clogged pores. It is less irritating then the pure form of vitamin C
2.6% - 3.9%
A typically plant-derived compound that is supposed mimic human collagen. Cannot penetrate the skin barrier so is not particularly useful in skincare products beyond attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
1.9% - 2.9%
1.6% - 2.4%
A plant extract that can help neutralize free radicals in skin and attract water to its upper layer
1.2% - 1.9%
A plant extract that can help neutralize free radicals in skin and even out the skin tone, but is typically used in products in a concentration that is too low to be effective
1.1% - 1.6%
A plant extract that contains resveratrol and other anti-oxidant compounds that can help neutralize free radicals, reduce inflammation in skin and even out its tone. Can be also used to stabilize the product formulation
0.9% - 1.35%
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
0.5% - 1.2%
Plant extract that might have help to neutralize free radicals in skin, but evidence of effectiveness is skin is lacking
0.4% - 0.95%
A preservative that comes from radishes fermented by a bacteria. New research suggests that the preservation properties in the ingredient come from an ammonium salt that is not present naturally in radish root but used in its cultivation. Is problematic because the exact amount of the preservative agents is difficult to determine
0.35% - 0.8%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin
0.15% - 0.65%
Naturally present in skin and helps to attract water to its upper layer
0.1% - 0.5%
Used to stabilize product formulations
0.1% - 0.3%
A solvent with some emollient properties
0.05% - 0.2%
An aromatic blend of unspecified and possibly irritating ingredients
0.01% - 0.05%
A common frangrance that can easily irritate skin, especially if exposed to air, light or heat
0.01% - 0.05%
