"Power Pair for Wrinkles"
From product name
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness because it contains palmitoyl hexapeptide-12.

These ingredients in the product can also be helpful, even though there is less evidence for their effectiveness: palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-38, palmitoyl tripeptide-5, resveratrol.

Keep in mind that it typically takes at least 6 weeks to notice any results because the changes that are needed to improve fine lines and elasticity happen in the deeper layers of the skin. No topical anti-aging product can “erase” wrinkles or fully reverse signs of aging.

"The quick-absorbing formula helps to minimise the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks, as it enhances skin tone and texture for smooth, youthful-looking results."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (resveratrol) that could help reduce hyperpigmentation (for example, post-acne marks or age spots) in theory, but there is not enough evidence that they actually work.

"SD Advanced Intensive Concentrate for Wrinkles and Stretch Marks (10ml) Powered by an innovative Collagex-CE ComplexTM, the ultra-hydrating moisturiser delivers anti-ageing benefits, whilst the brand's patented NIA-114TM technology shields from the damaging effects of environmental aggressors."
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, hydrolyzed 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: caprylic/capric triglyceride, dimethicone.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: palmitoyl hexapeptide-12, palmitoyl tetrapeptide-7, palmitoyl tripeptide-38, palmitoyl tripeptide-5, panthenol
