Skin is skin?

#1
I’m still new to traditional wet shaving. One that surprises me is that after a face and head shave I can put any aftershave or balm/moisturiser on my head and very few balm/moisturisers on my face. My face can only really accept an aftershave. Anything else irritates.
Surely one product should work on head and face? It’s the same skin?
