WIMJ summary for evens skin tone

This product contains ingredients () that could help reduce hyperpigmentation (for example, post-acne marks or age spots) in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

The biggest effect for evening out skin tone in this product comes from sun protection. Sun damage is the main factor causing age spots, darkening of post-acne marks and other discolorations. This is why sun protection is the best strategy for maintaining an even skin tone. We, however, do not recommend using this product as a sunscreen because the protection it offers is not strong enough).

What does the product description say?
"Unlike most primers that leave behind a dry, powdery finish, this sleek and portable compact synchronizes with skin to create a fresh effect anytime, anywhere thanks to powerful ingredients like moisturizing hyaluronic acid, antioxidant wild thyme extract , and Smart Correcting Powder that diffuses light for a poreless appearance."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: cera microcristallina, hydrogenated polyisobutene.

Keep in mind that this product does not contain effective ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. This is why an additional product with humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid can be helpful (apply it before this product for the best results).

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