"2% retinol and natural sources of vitamin A to supercharge cellular turnover to reveal healthy-looking new cells and soften the fine lines and wrinkles."
WIMJ summary

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

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.

"2% retinol, fermented green tea and black cumin extracts, stimulates cellular turnover to reveal healthy skin cells and a youthful-looking complexion while also improving skin's texture and pore size."
WIMJ summary

What does the product description say?
"Visibly improving uneven texture, your hydration barrier as well as loading skin with skin-protecting and free radical-fighting benefits that you'll love."
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: pseudozyma epicola/camellia sinensis seed oil/glucose/malt extract/soybean flour/yeast extract ferment filtrate.

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: helianthus annuus seed oil, cannabis sativa seed oil.
