    Green Tea Hand Cream

    Does Green Tea Hand Cream have to be corrected to "Green-Tea Hand-Cream" or is this okay as it is?

    Green Tea Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and takes care of dry skin moist

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    I would not use a hyphen there.

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    The hyphens are incorrect there, and your second sentence is unfinished.

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    Why is it unfinished? Due to lack of "period" or is "takes care of dry skin most" incomplete?

    Green Tea Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and takes care of dry skin moist.

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    Please decide whether you mean 'most' or 'moist'.

    In either case it doesn't make sense.

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    Moisturising the skin and keeping( not take care of) the skin moist are the same thing.

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    I meant "moist", then how do I have to correct it? Doesn't "takes care of dry skin moist" make sense?

    Re: Green Tea Hand Cream

    If it's kept moist, it isn't dry.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
