I have combination skin and they tend to cause me more problems than they fix, so I am somewhat cautious. I may seek out samples, if available, from the above.

+1. If I want to grow out a beard, I still very much enjoy the shaving process (if I grow it out, I make sure it stops just below the jawline). Not to mention being liberal with the aftershave means I get to enjoy the scent all day long.

The few balms I have used over the years, tend to have restorative properties and some amount of astringence. Not so with moisturizers which will soak in, and sometimes leave a residue-ish feeling.
Can't talk to the actual pharmaceutical science of the differences, but there you have it.
