Is it bad if I use body lotion on my face? What is the difference?

Author: Dr. Bobby Buka

Lotion ingredients vary widely from brand to brand, but there is usually little difference between ingredients used in body lotions compared to those intended for the face.

Sure, body lotions typically come in bigger jars, and face lotions come in smaller jars; however, when you look at ingredient lists, most body lotions can be used very safely on the face.There is only one exception – some body lotions are not certified as non-comedogenic (non acne causing). Steer clear of these, as they can clog pores of the face.
