"Licorice, niacinamide and glutathione brighten, while pine bark extract minimizes fine lines."
WIMJ summary

This product contains centella asiatica leaf extract. This ingredient 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.

"Packed with 70% green tangerine extract, this surprisingly gentle vitamin C serum will help fade dark spots and hyperpigmentation while still hydrating and soothing the skin."
WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (glycyrrhiza glabra root extract, morus alba bark extract) 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.

"Say hello to hydration and bye to breakouts with this lightweight, refreshing lotion aimed to control excessive sebum and blemishes."
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, cyclomethicone.

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: dimethicone, peg-10 dimethicone.

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