What does the product description say?
"A reinvigorating, resurfacing treatment, Susanne Kaufmann’s Enzyme Peel has been especially developed for those with fragile, sensitive complexions – harnessing the properties of mild fruit acids (from apples, papayas and kiwis) to gently slough away the dulling surface ‘scurf’ (an accumulation of dead skin cells, grime and oxidised sebum) that can compromise skin’s youthful lustre."

"Enzyme Peel"
From product name
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.

"A cocktail of calming plant extracts, including soothing aloe vera then helps to nourish and hydrate, so skin is left velvety smooth, soft and supple with an enviable, lit-from-within glow."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": glycerin, saccharide isomerate.

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. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).
