Is it okay to wash skin with shampoo in replacement of a soap?

I use a shampoo instead of soap when washing face and even hand-washing clothes. I'm reluctant to put a laundry detergent on hands. So I always use shampoo that I think is safe on not only hair but also skin in most cases. Can a shampoo be substitute for soap and detergent ?

    YEs, of course. I use shampoo to hand wash delicate items, also. Consider that the pioneers only had harsh lye soap- for clothes, body, hair, dishes - everything. It's the manufacturers who want to convince you that you need a different soap for each thing.

    Yes but don't do the reverse.Shampooing hair with soap dries it out.
