What does the product description say?
"Rich in age-defying retinol, hydrating hyaluronic acid, regenerating rosehip oil and moisture-locking soy protein, this transformative treatment peels, plumps, smooths and hydrates, imparting enviable, youthful glow in 15 minutes flat."
WIMJ summary

This product contains trifluoroacetyl tripeptide-2. 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?
"It is a thick, hydrating balm that leaves my skin hydrated, younger and glowing!"
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: dextran, yeast extract.

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: helianthus annuus seed oil, simmondsia chinensis seed oil.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: petrolatum, trifluoroacetyl tripeptide-2

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (camellia sinensis leaf extract, lycium barbarum fruit extract, yeast extract) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.
