What does the product description say?
"boosts hydration in the skin and plumps surrounding tissues to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles Glycolic Acid."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and firmness because it contains glycolic acid.

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.

WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: glycolic acid

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.

What does the product description say?
"Formulated to remove dead skin cells, boost cell regeneration, hydrate and depuff the skin, this formula combines glycolic and lactic acids, offering a one-step solution to layering multiple acids safely."
WIMJ summary

This product can help exfoliate the skin. In other words, it helps break down the bonds between dead cells on the surface of the skin and speed up the skin turnover. Skin often appears softer and brighter after exfoliation, but overdoing it can result in disrupted skin barrier. The following ingredient is doing the exfoliating job in this product: glycolic acid.

WIMJ summary

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

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).

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: cannabidiol - derived from extract or tincture or resin of cannabis

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Plain old water
40% - 60%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
4% - 6.1%
Helps stabilize emulsions and create a nice product texture
3.6% - 5.4%
Helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin
2.7% - 4.1%
Used to create gel-like formulas and stabilize emulsions
2% - 3%
A plant extract that might help neutralize free radicals in skin, but research on its efficacy in skin is lacking
1.6% - 2.5%
An alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that helps to remove the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin reveling a more even, smoother complexation. It is also able to stimulate collagen production with long-term use. Could help to reduce pore congestion. It can be irritating to the skin. Apply sunscreen daily if using products with glycolic acid
1.4% - 2.1%
An exfoliating and moisturizing alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA). Typically causes less irritation than other AHAs, for example, glycolic acid. At high concentrations (about 15%), lactic acid can help reduce lines and wrinkles. Recent studies show that lactic acid can support the "good" bacteria living on skin's surface (healthy skin microbiom)
1.2% - 1.9%
Helps oil and water mix together
1% - 1.6%
A preservative. It helps prevent bacterial growth in cosmetic products
0.5% - 1%
Used to adjust the product's pH
0.5% - 1.2%
Used as a fragrance. Can be irritating and cause photosensitivity
0.4% - 0.95%
Might be helpful in neutralizing free radicals. Can have a dehydration effect that might somewhat decrease the look of puffy eyes
0.35% - 0.85%
Sugar extract that helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin
0.35% - 0.8%
A salt derived from licorice. Works as an emollient to soften the upper layer of the skin and can help calm down inflammation. Might be helpful for skin lightening
0.3% - 0.7%
Naturally present in skin and helps to attract water to its upper layer
0.3% - 0.7%
Helps stabilize the product formulation
0.2% - 0.8%
A plant extract that helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin. It might be helpful in neutralizing free radicals in skin, but is less potent than the extract from the seeds
0.2% - 0.7%
A fruit extract that might help to attract water to the upper layer of the skin, but there is no evidence for any other benefits to the skin
0.15% - 0.65%
0.15% - 0.6%
CBD. Can bind to skin cell receptors and can reduce inflammation, itching, and help support skin barrier function
0.15% - 0.6%
Used to create a nice product texture and help delivery of other ingredients. Might be somewhat helpful in attracting water to the upper layer of the skin
0.15% - 0.6%
A plant extract that is used as a fragrance. Can be irritating and lead to photosensitivity
0.15% - 0.5%
Produces temporary toning effect. Can help dissolve other ingredients or preserve products
0.15% - 0.5%
A preservative
0.15% - 0.5%
A plant extract that might have some anti-oxidant effect in skin, but evidence is lacking
0.1% - 0.5%
0.1% - 0.45%
A plant extract that contains small percentage of AHAs. Is unlikely to have any skin benefit due the small concentration of the active compounds
0.1% - 0.45%
A preservative that comes from radishes fermented by a bacteria. New research suggests that the preservation properties in the ingredient come from an ammonium salt that is not present naturally in radish root but used in its cultivation. Is problematic because the exact amount of the preservative agents is difficult to determine
0.1% - 0.4%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin. Naturally present in skin. Typically has large molecule size unless advertised otherwise on the product label. Helps support skin's barrier function and may help to reduce inflammation
0.1% - 0.35%
A preservative
0.05% - 0.25%
A plant extract that has been shown to be able to reduce inflammation in skin, support restoration of skin barrier function, as well as support collagen production. Contains active compounds called centelloids: asiaticoside, madecasosside, asiatic acid and madecassic acid. Might be helpful in preventing stretch marks. It can be itself be irritating though.
