What does the product description say?
"Enriched with fractionated hyaluronic acid, soothing green tea polyphenols and nourishing peptides, this ultra hydrating mask helps to provide instant relief and reduce the appearance of redness after aesthetic treatments."
WIMJ summary

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

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: palmitoyl sh-tripeptide-4 amide

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (camellia sinensis catechins, resveratrol) that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. By doing so, they can lessen the damage the skin gets from the UV light (sun).

The following ingredients - phyllanthus emblica fruit extract also can have an antioxidant effect, but there is less evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin.
