What does the product description say?
"Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles ."
WIMJ summary

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

"Reduce pigmentation ."
WIMJ summary

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: gluconolactone, 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.

From product name
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: gluconolactone, glycolic acid.

What does the product description say?
"Tropic provides a range of serums and oils from hydration, to tanning to age-defying!"
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, arginine.

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: arginine.

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (gluconolactone) that might be able to help neutralize free radicals in skin to lessen the damage it gets from the UV light (sun). There is not enough evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin though.

Ingredients by volume

Ingredient Estimated concentration
Might help to attract water to the upper layer of the skin
23% - 34%
Acts as a solvent for other ingredients. Speeds up the absorption of other ingredients into the skin
5.1% - 7.6%
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
4.4% - 6.6%
Plain old water
3% - 4.6%
A fermentation product created by bacteria Lactobacillus. The fermented product has anti-bacterial properties and might be helpful in calming down inflammation, but studies are lacking. Helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin. Can be used as a preservative
2.2% - 3.3%
A polyhydroxy acid (PHA) that helps shed the dead cells from the skin surface revealing smoother skin. Is believed to be genter than AHAs. It helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin and can stimulate production of skin's own hyaluronic acid resulting in improved hydration levels. It has been shown to be helpful against acne and clogged pores if used consistently (e.g over a period of 12 weeks) in high enough concentration. It can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone with long-term application. Can help neutralize free radicals
1.8% - 2.7%
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
1.6% - 2.3%
Most likely used for its fragrance. Can be irritating and lead to photosensitivity
1.3% - 2%
A fruit extract that might help attract water to the upper layer of the skin. There is no evidence of other benefits in skin
1.1% - 1.7%
Can have some moisturizing properties due to its sugar content
0.9% - 1.35%
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
0.55% - 1.25%
0.45% - 1.05%
A plant extract that contains small percentage of AHAs. Is unlikely to have any skin benefit due the small concentration of the active compounds
0.4% - 0.9%
A plant extract used as a fragrance. Can be irritating
0.35% - 0.85%
A plant extract that might help neutralize free radicals in skin, but research on its efficacy in skin is lacking
0.35% - 0.8%
A plant extract that might help neutralize free radicals in skin, but research on its effectiveness is lacking
0.35% - 0.8%
A plant extract that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. It contains a compound salicin that can theoretically be converted into salicylic acid that, in turn, helps reduce inflammation in skin, but the evidence of effectiveness in skin is lacking and the extract is usually not used in a concentration that would enable an exfoliating effect
0.3% - 0.75%
Used as a fragrance. Can be irritating and cause photosensitivity
0.3% - 0.75%
Sugar extract that helps attract water to the upper layer of the skin
0.2% - 0.75%
A plant extract that is used as a fragrance. Can be irritating and lead to photosensitivity
0.2% - 0.7%
Helps calm down inflammation in skin and can help reduce itching. Helps to repair the skin barrier and keep skin hydrated
0.15% - 0.6%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Attracts water into the upper layer of the skin
0.15% - 0.65%
An amino acid that is naturally present in skin and helps keep it hydrated. When used together with AHAs, it can reduce their irritating effect on the skin
0.15% - 0.55%
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)
0.15% - 0.55%
An alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA), but is mostly used to stabilize product formulations in cosmetics
0.15% - 0.55%
One of the best moisturizing ingredients. Naturally present in skin. It attracts water to the upper layer of the skin working as a humectant
0.15% - 0.55%
Used to create a thicker product consistency
0.1% - 0.45%
Used to adjust the product's pH
0.1% - 0.4%
A preservative. Can be used to mask unpleasant smell. Can be irritating
0.05% - 0.3%
A common frangrance that can easily irritate skin, especially if exposed to air, light or heat
0.05% - 0.2%
