What does the product description say?
"Energy Boosting Toner by Renée Rouleau works to dramatically brighten and refresh the skin's appearance by infusing a glow-enhancing blend of stimulating botanicals and super hydrators deep within the skin."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

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

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).
