Face lotion bottle went down the toilet as it was flushing.

very bottle of lotion went right down the toilet as it was flushing. It reached in as far as I could and couldn't feel anything, so I thought I'd flush it again and see what happened (stupid, I know but I wasn't thinking clearly). There was a bunch of rattling, the toilet seem to back up and start to overflow, and then nothing. It went back to normal. It has had a lot of use since, flushed a lot of solids, and it seems to be fine. I swear it bubbles a little when it flushes by the husband says I am crazy (he also says if his poop can make it through, that bottle can *rolls eyes*)
The bottle seems way too big to have made it out and I'm excessively worried about what problems could arise from this, but the husband says the toilet is flushing perfectly (better than normal, he says). I don't know if I am just being overly stressed (probably), but can a lotion bottle really make it through? I fear it is stuck somewhere and going to cause future problems.
