"Papaya enzymes gently resurface eliminating dulling dead cells to reveal the more luminous skin cells beneath while alpha-arbutin and giant white bird of paradise extract combine to brighten hyperpigmentation spots and restore uniformity of tone."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: alpha-arbutin

Keep in mind that you would need to apply any topical skincare targetted at hypigmentation consistently for a couple of months to get a result. No topical skincare product can help get rid of hyperpigmentation (including post-acne marks and age spots) instantly.

"An advanced brightening, refining treatment, Sunday Rileys Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream is brimming with hyaluronic acid, which attracts and retains up to 1000x its own weight in water, to optimise hydration and in turn, exhibit a skin-smoothing, firming and plumping effect."
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: allantoin, 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: caprylic/capric triglyceride, isododecane.
