La vs sa for body parts

In the summary translation at the end of the exercise, you propose 'elle ne cachait plus sa bouche' as opposed to 'la' bouche previously in Kwizbot's answer. Is this difference sometimes a matter of personal preference?

Hi Jack,

There are two possible answers -

elle ne se cachait plus la bouche

or 

elle ne cachait plus sa bouche 

and both are accepted.

Take a look at the following lesson for more information -

Using le, la, les with body parts and clothing (definite articles)

Hope this helps!
