What does the product description say?
"PTR061 7883 670367003732 5 stars, based on 6 reviews Brimming with supercharged, encapsulated retinol to ‘anti-age’ the delicate eye area, Peter Thomas Roth’s Retinol Fusion PM Eye Cream kick-starts sluggish skin cells to encourage the creation of line-smoothing and firming elastin and collagen."
WIMJ summary

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

These ingredients in the product can also be helpful, even though there is less evidence for their effectiveness: retinyl palmitate.

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.

"Peter Thomas Roth, Retinol Fusion PM A night time, anti-ageing eye cream infused with a highly concentrated Microencapsulated Retinol Complex, Shea Butter, Vitamins C & E, and Caffeine to work overnight to smooth the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce irregular pigmentation while nourishing and moisturising for a refreshed, youthful complexion."
WIMJ summary

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

The following ingredient (ingredients) in this product might be helpful, but there is no evidence to confirm that it actually can help even out the skin tone: retinyl palmitate.

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.

WIMJ summary

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: retinol.

"Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Eye Cream The ultimate foil for fine lines and wrinkles, Peter Thomas Roth’s Retinol Fusion PM Eye Cream delivers all the powerful, regenerative benefits you’d usually expect from retinol, without the irritating, dehydrating side-effects."
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: algae extract, sodium hyaluronate.

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: beeswax, butyrospermum parkii butter.

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

Plain old water
45% - 55%
An emollient that softens the skin and forms a protective layer on its surface. Helps water and oil mix together
4.4% - 5.3%
The ingredient is not recognized
TBC
A non-drying alcohol that works to soften the skin and stabilize product formulations helping oil and water mix together
3.7% - 4.6%
3.2% - 3.9%
Forms a protective barrier that holds water and keeps dry skin hydrated. Keeps an emulsion from separating into its oil and liquid components, and increases the thickness of a product. Can be an allergen
2.6% - 3.2%
Might be helpful in neutralizing free radicals. Can have a dehydration effect that might somewhat decrease the look of puffy eyes
2% - 2.5%
Two steps removed from the active form of vitamin A - retinoic acid. Once converted to the retinoic acid in the skin, retinol is proven to be effective against all signs of aging. It improves skin cell turnover, helps fight blemishes and clogged pores, can regulate excess oil production and even skin tone. It can, however, be quite irritating
1.7% - 2.1%
A great moisturising ingredient that softens the skin and reduces water loss from its upper layer. It also can be helpful in protecting skin from free radicals
1.5% - 1.9%
An emollient that helps soften the skin and could be helpful in repairing its barrier function
1.3% - 1.6%
The most well-researched antioxidant that works in skin. Helps neutralize free radicals supporting collagen production, helping to even out the skin tone and preventing early signs of aging
1.1% - 1.3%
Three steps removed from the active form of vitamin A - retinoic acid. To have an effect in the skin, it first needs to be converted twice to become the retinoic acid. This means it is less potent than retinol, but could also be less irritating. Once converted to the retinoic acid in the skin, it helps against all signs of aging, improves skin cell turnover and helps fight blemishes and clogged pores. However, in many cosmetic formulations, it is used in a concentration that is too low to have the full effect
0.75% - 1.15%
A more stable but less bio-available form of vitamin E compared to Tocopherol. Might help moisturize and protect the skin from free radicals, but mostly used in low concentrations to stabilize other ingredients.
0.7% - 1.05%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin
0.65% - 1%
Naturally present in skin and helps to attract water to its upper layer
0.6% - 0.9%
A preservative
0.6% - 0.9%
An antioxidant enzyme that is naturally present in skin. It can help support skin barrier function and reduce inflammation in skin. It is used in topical medications for inflammatory skin conditions including atopic dermatitis (eczema) and psoriasis. There are three types of natural Superoxide Dismutase in human skin. The compound used in topical treatments and cosmetics are mimics of typically one of these natural variants
0.6% - 0.85%
An oil naturally present in skin. Works as an emollient to soften the skin and form a protective layer on its surface without a greasy feeling.
0.6% - 0.9%
Traditionally used to treat sunburns, dermatitis and inflammation, but evidence for its effectiveness is lacking. The extract can contain humectants that help attract water into the skin
0.5% - 0.75%
A typically plant-derived compound that is supposed mimic human collagen. Cannot penetrate the skin barrier so is not particularly useful in skincare products beyond attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
0.5% - 0.75%
0.5% - 0.7%
Used mostly for creating emulsions - helping oil and water mix together. Helps soften the upper layer of the skin
0.45% - 0.7%
0.4% - 0.6%
A type of lipid similar to ceramides naturally present in skin. Helps to soften the upper layer of the skin and supports the skin barrier function to keep it hydrated. Can help to prevent inflammation in skin
0.45% - 0.65%
Plant extract that might have some anti-oxidant properties. Can be irritating
0.35% - 0.6%
Plant extract that helps the skin to attract water and make it more smooth for touch. Also shows promise of anti-aging properties, but research is not extensive yet
0.5% - 0.7%
Helps soften the upper layer of the skin, dissolve other ingredients and create a thicker product consistency
0.45% - 0.65%
0.35% - 0.65%

A plant extract that might have an anti-inflammatory effect in skin
0.45% - 0.65%
Can contain potent anti-oxidant compounds (abbreviated ECG, GCG, EGC, and EGCG) that might help protect the skin from free radicals. Can help calm down inflammation and has some anti-bacterial properties. Unfortunately, these antioxidants are unstable and lose their effectiveness very quickly in products. The concentration of the antioxidant compounds in the extract also tends to be low to be effective in topical formulation
0.4% - 0.65%
A silicone that helps to reduce water loss from the surface of the skin. Can temporarily "fill in" lines and wrinkles, absorb oil, and create a nice product finish
0.45% - 0.7%
