What does the product description say?
"Harnessing their knowledge of botanical oils with a mission to reveal supple, youthful skin, Nuxe's Super Serum [10] harnesses an abundance of natural ingredients to diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots."
WIMJ summary

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

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.

What does the product description say?
"Stimulating your skin's natural renewal processes, this serum is laced with natural hyaluronic acid, vitamin B3 (otherwise known as niacinamide) and botanical oils to plump your skin, smooth the look of fine lines and even your tone and texture."
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: alcaligenes polysaccharides, betaine.

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: caprylic/capric triglyceride, alcaligenes polysaccharides.

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