How to wash off silicone based mineral sunscreen?

Hey besties! I'm using a sunscreen which is silicone based and has zinc in it. I can't use chemical ones because my skin gets really irritated, I can't see any irritation happening with this one as of now and no white caste as well. All I'm concerned is that I don't think it washes off completely after using cleansing lotion+foaming cleanser. If this continues my pores will get clogged so please someone tell me, how do I wash it off completely? Should I use micellar water? I'm extremely sensitive, hyper reactive acne prone combo skin. I also cannot tolerate niacinamide at all. Please help. (For information I use ZBLOCK sunscreen, available in India at pharmacies)

Go in with an oil based cleanser to break up the sunscreen then follow with a water based gel or foam cleanser
