Sun Care! ☀️ Mineral or Chemical?

Hi everyone! So I’m trying to find a sun screen to add to my skin care routine to be able to apply before makeup, but I can’t seem to decide what type I want (physical sunscreen or chemical sunscreen) I’m wanting to apply as sun protection before applying makeup, and having oily skin it needs to be relatively non-greasy! Also would prefer it to not be white casting. There are so many products out there and so many mixed reviews! Let me know your personal preferences, experiences and recommendations below! ☀️☺️🤍

chemical always!! mineral sunscreens all leave a white cast on me even though I have fair skin, if I apply the correct amount. high SPF mineral sunscreens are even worse. chemical sunscreens don't do that. the only downside is some of them may sting my eyes.

I hadn’t even heard of powder ones until I started looking to add it to my skincare routine! Do you have a particular powder one you use? ☺️
