What does the product description say?
"This ultra-innovative formula is powered not only by nourishing botanicals but also by a proprietary complex of peptides to visibly improve the look of the four horsemen of fatigue (a. k. a. fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles)."
WIMJ summary

This product contains 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid, acetyl octapeptide-3, acetyl tetrapeptide-5, adenosine phosphate, dipeptide-2, epigallocatechin gallatyl glucoside, tripeptide-1. These ingredients 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.

This product can help reduce hypepigmentation and even out the skin tone because it contains the following effective ingredients: 3-o-ethyl ascorbic acid, salicylic 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.

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: salicylic acid.

What does the product description say?
"Hyaluronic acid, youth-prolonging marine collagen and a unique botanical blend work to supercharge the eye area with a dose of 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: dextran, glycerin.

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: squalane, cetyl alcohol.

The following ingredients in this product are especially good for supporting the skin barrier and helping with the hydration level: acetyl octapeptide-3, acetyl tetrapeptide-5, dipeptide-2, salicyloyl phytosphingosine, tripeptide-1
