    anti-aging effects.

    What is the difference between "anti-aging effects" and "an anti-aging effect"? Does the former imply many various effects? Also is "anti-skin-aging effect" used? Which, I haven't heard of.

    1. Rose Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and has great anti-aging effects.
    2. Rose Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and has a great anti-aging effect.
    3. Rose Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and has a great anti-skin-aging effect.

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    I would not use 3.

    I would accept either 1 or 2. Aging is very complex and can be seen as one process or a variety of processes.

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    Thanks a lot! What about "an effect" and "effects" difference? Is the latter more impressive and emphasizing?

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    It is better to use "effects" unless you are certain that there is only one effect.

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    As I said in post 2, you can see it as one thing or a sum of several things. That will determine your choice of "effect" or "effects".
    The problem with "effects" is that it might not mean all effects. If you use "effect" it can be seen as the sum total of everything that contributes to aging.

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    Instead of the term "anti-aging effect" , which is proper among "relax", "relieve" or "slow down"?

    . Rose Hand Cream with propolis is excellent for moisturizing and has a great anti-aging effect.
    => relaxes(relieves, slows down) aging

    Re: anti-aging effects.

    Why does your English practice/study consist of these never-ending variations on sentences about hand cream and other toiletries? It sounds like you have the world's most boring textbook.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I replied to him on that, and the same goes for this thread as well.
