What does the product description say?
"The masks drench skin with an advanced skincare serum containing Adenosine and Liquorice Root Extract, visibly smoothing wrinkles and brightening the appearance of the delicate eye area."
WIMJ summary

This product contains acetyl hexapeptide-8, adenosine. 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?
"Intelligently shaped to contour the delicate eye area, the Eye Catcher masks are formulated with a signature balance of naturally fermented, Vitamin rich Coconut Juice offering exceptional hydration."
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: arginine, glycerin.

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: arginine, hydrolyzed collagen.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl hexapeptide-8, panthenol
