Toner and aftershave are generally interchangeable, and the best one to use is one that is most suitable for your skin type. If you have dry skin, I recommend toner for dry skin. If you have oily skin and get zits from time to time, then I recommend the variety for oily/combination skin. If you don't have dry skin, or particularly oily skin, then the variety for normal/sensitive skin has enough cleansing strength to do the job, which is to keep pores clean/mildly disinfected after shaving to prevent razor burn. I don't generally recommend the toner for acne prone skin because it has very strong antibacterial ingredients that might cause burning and redness to freshly shaved skin. And, by the way, it's a myth that aftershave needs to sting to work since the sting usually comes from alcohol, which Just the Goods doesn't use.
