    Please give us a sentence that uses one of the words, with some context that will help us understand when you would say the sentence. We'll be happy to help you decide whether you've chosen the correct term.

    Pain balm: never heard this.
    face cream: very common usage
    Moisturising Lotion:very common usage
    Ointment for headache: No. Ointment usually goes on cuts, stings, eczema, etc.

    Without a complete sentence in context, this thread lacks focus, and I have closed it. A general discussion of four different words is outside the scope of the forum.
