  • Yes, the only issue is that sometimes the non facial lotion is very greasy and if you break out easily, I would use something lighter, but if it's only once, yeah who cares.

  • It depends on how greasy the lotion is and how oily your skin is.
    You could cause the face to become too greasy, which can cause you to break out.

  • Also if you get allergic reactions to fragrances be careful. My mom had tons of problems with shampoo and lotions. You never know how your skin will react to it so use caution

  • anything without scent. The perfume in scented lotions can dry your skin. jergens has a light scent so that might be fine. but I wouldn't use the baby lotion sense the scent is a little stronger. Baby lotion always drys my skin out

  • I had a huge jar of cetaphil body cream. I used it on my face and it's ok. I used to spend so much on face creams and such but now I know better. Jergens? I don't isn't hypoallergenic and it has perfume in it so I wouldn't use that on my face. I won't recommend it.
