Does the cream invalidate wudoo’ or not?

Question

Does the cream which people use on their hands and face invalidate wudoo’ or not?

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

For a woman to use cream on her face does not break wudoo’, neither does it break one’s fast. Similarly, using lipstick does not break one’s wudoo’ or one’s fast, but when one is fasting, if these cosmetics have any flavour they should not be used in any way that may lead to the flavour reaching the throat.
