I think if you check the ingredients you will find that hand cream is virtually identical to moisturiser, just maybe a bit thicker, and much better value for money. I use body shop body butter on my face when I get really dry patches.

It's just a bit thicker. I don't think there is any difference between handcream and body lotion.

I do this all the time. Not just hand cream on face, but body lotion on face, face cream on hands, body lotion on hands. My body is still functioning grin. It's all pretty much the same stuff anyway.

Mind you I've never tried my foot cream on my face/body yet... Wonder what that would do.

Foot cream on stretch marks works a treat.

I've tries foot cream on my face when I was stuck with nothing else. It was nice. Nice soft face. Crappy feet though.

Oh and my brother used to have a summer job in a cosmetics packing plant and he said a lot of the stuff came from the same vat.

Oh and my brother was an eye cream specialist and he said it's just sold in tinier (and trickier to fill) tubes with a 10x per milliliter price tag. I pretty much lost faith in 'selective' cosmetics after he explained what was going on at the plant.

Actually,I read that Elizabeth Taylor,only used hand cream on her face,as a moisturiser and she refused to say which one,because she said that its very cheap,and if the cosmetic company knows that she uses it,they will increase prices.

But you will be kind enough to tell us if it works corus smile

My OH uses neutrogena handcream on his face.

He's fine... your face shouldn't fall off grin

cream is cream is cream. Better to moisturise with that than nothing at all.

I use Lansinoh sore nipple cream on my hands. Last night I tried it on my face too. It's still here.

I think your face is going to turn into a hand and you will be like the thing in Pan's Labyrinth by bedtime.
