What does the product description say?
"As well as providing 24-hour hydration to improve the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, the moisturiser also doubles as an intensive face mask."
WIMJ summary

This product contains 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid. This ingredient might be able to help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness, but there is not enough evidence that it actually works.

What does the product description say?
"The overnight mask helps to give the skin a dewy, glowing finish while helping to reduce the effects of dullness and dark spots."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid

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

Does not contain the most effective ingredients for moisturization. The emollients (diisostearyl malate, hydrogenated polydecene) can help soften the upper layer of the skin. Keep in mind though that this product lacks humectants that attract water. You might want to use a separate product with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin in addition (use before this product for the best results).
