What does the product description say?
"Meanwhile, vitamin B5 (panthenol) hydrates and protects the skin barrier, hyaluronic acid plumps and reduces fine lines, ginseng root calms skin, and baikal skullcap root extract helps reduce hyperpigmentation."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain ingredients that are able to reduce fine lines and wrinkles or help with skin elasticity, but it can improve the look of the skin temporarily through moisturization. Well-moisturized skin might also be able to repair the sun damage better.

WIMJ summary

This product contains ingredients (dipotassium glycyrrhizate) 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.

What does the product description say?
"It does so with natural charcoal extract and charcoal powder, which work to absorb excess oil in order to shrink pores while nixing dead skin cells."
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.

What does the product description say?
"We recommend this product for oil control, reducing pore appearance size, and hydration."
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: anhydroxylitol, dipotassium glycyrrhizate.

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: argania spinosa kernel oil, isopropyl myristate.

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

Plain old water
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
