1. Who ate all the cookies? John did. It's written all over his face. (often associated with guilt or a secret of some sort) 2. He's into a lot of social causes. He's always helping people. He is a very kind and generous man. He wears his heart on his sleeve, and thus gets hurt easily. (not afraid to show one's sensitive side, but is vulnerable because of that)

The expressions are not exactly the same. It is he for whom everything is written all over his face. (Awkward phrasing) It is he who wears his heart on his sleeve. (Better) Just say "everything is written all over his face". "He wears his heart on his sleeve". This has a more romantic connotation.
