WIMJ summary

This product contains astaxanthin, palmitoyl pentapeptide-4. 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?
"Working to deeply cleanse pores without over-drying, this tonic exfoliates, clarifies and brightens, using dragon’s blood (a unique ingredient that forms a protective, anti-bacterial ‘second skin’ to ward off any outside damage while promoting cell turnover) and fermented rooibos tea (an anti-inflammatory tea from Africa that boasts 50% more antioxidants than green tea for unrivalled protection again environmental aggressors, as well as exfoliating alpha hydroxy acid and soothing zinc for a healthy, glowing complexion)."
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.

"Oily and combination skin types are left feeling cleansed, balanced, purified and hydrated."
WIMJ summary

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

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).

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: palmitoyl pentapeptide-4
