What does the product description say?
"A powerful treatment that visibly tightens skin in 5 minutes, Firming Eye Complex contains antioxidant astaxanthin and a signature peptide blend that work synergistically to soften the appearance of fine lines and brighten the look of dark circles in just three weeks."
WIMJ summary

This product contains acetyl tetrapeptide-11, acetyl tetrapeptide-5, acetyl tetrapeptide-9, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-38. These ingredients 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?
"Pair it with our Microneedling Tool to gently micro-exfoliate the skin and boost the wrinkle-refining benefits of the serum."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

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: glycerin, hyaluronic acid.

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: palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, pentylene glycol.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl tetrapeptide-11, acetyl tetrapeptide-5, acetyl tetrapeptide-9, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-38

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (chrysin, haematococcus pluvialis 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.
