What does the product description say?
"Saturated with potent blue butterfly flower and Kalahari melon extracts among 19 other botanicals and a nourishing blend of macadamia, cupuaçu and evening primrose oils, this balm reinforces and protects the lipid barrier, seals moisture for up to 24 hours of deep hydration, ‘plumps’ out the look of dehydration lines and smooths roughness."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain ingredients that are able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or help with skin elasticity, but it can improve the look of the skin temporarily through moisturization. Well-moisturized skin might also be able to repair the sun damage better.This ingredient - butyrospermum parkii butter - could be helpful for preventing or repairing signs of aging in theory, but there is no evidence that it actually works.

What does the product description say?
"A year-round skin care staple, look to this pot of wonder to protect against extreme cold or dry weather, fend against harsh, moisture-depleting wind and as replenishing after care for sunburn or exposure."
WIMJ summary

This product can help soften the skin and reduce its moisture loss with emollients and occlusives: butyrospermum parkii butter, caprylic/capric triglyceride.

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).
