Propylene glycol on your face?

I've had acne ever since puberty, both cystic and pustular. My little sister said she's been using baby wipes, so I got some that claim to be unscented, hypoallergenic, and alcohol-free. Great, right? The first day my face felt fine. Second day it feels a little tight and I had to use a moisturizer. I looked up the ingredients, and was wondering if one of them could be irritating? I know there's an adjustment period for your skin when introducing a new routine, I've just gotten paranoid about accidentally doing more harm than good.

I'm not sure about the ingredients, but baby wipes are not made for your face, so it wouldn't surprise me if they would irritate your skin. Where did your sister get the idea to use them on her face?
