WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: acetyl glucosamine

Keep in mind that you would need to apply any topical skincare targetted at hypigmentation consistently for a couple of months to get a result. No topical skincare product can help get rid of hyperpigmentation (including post-acne marks and age spots) instantly.

What does the product description say?
"Targeting dehydration lines and tired eyes, each pair of hydrogel patches is infused with caffeine to improve micro-stimulation for brighter tone and reduced puffiness; sodium hyaluronate that naturally binds moisture to the skin; centella asiatica which encourages collagen production while inhibiting inflammation; hydrolysed collagen to improve skin’s hydration, elasticity, tone and density and finally, vitamin C and Omega3 fatty acid-rich Portulaca Oleracea extract which brightens the under-eye."
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: allantoin, 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: ricinus communis seed oil, hydrolyzed collagen.

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