Can the product deliver on its promises?

See a mistake?
Promise
What does the product description say?
"Containing exfoliators such as sugar, apricot seed and walnut shell powder, lip scrub thoroughly yet gently removes accumulated dead skin from lips."
WIMJ summary for exfoliation

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.

What does the product description say?
"Also blended with honey and oatmeal to provide a moisturizing finish, revealing smoother and kissable, soft lips."
WIMJ summary for moisturizing

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: hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate.

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: petrolatum, caprylic/capric glycerides.

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