WIMJ summary

This product contains n-prolyl palmitoyl tripeptide-56 acetate, palmitoyl heptapeptide-18, palmitoyl hexapeptide-52. 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?
"The gel-like formula helps to ensure that lines appear smoothed and skin looks tighter, while hyaluronic acid delivers moisturising benefits to maintain a suppler texture."
WIMJ summary

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

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: n-prolyl palmitoyl tripeptide-56 acetate, palmitoyl heptapeptide-18, palmitoyl hexapeptide-52
