are you team chemical or physical sunscreen? and why?

Sunscreen formulates differently and the ingredients used are different between physical and chemical. Which do you prefer and why?

Hiii dear, welcome to Picky! 🤗 I've used both types of sunscreens. In the beginning, I used to lean towards physical sunscreen but they left me with whitecast. And I'd dread reapplying them. 😞 Now, I'm fine with chemical ☀️ sunscreens. When it comes to sunscreen, what matters is that we enjoy using & reapply them every 2 hours or so. I'd appreciate if you followed me on IG. I'll follow you back 💕 @blueskies8whiteclouds

Physical sunscreen. Non-eye-sting, non-irritating on the compromised area or when there's a pimple, also easier to wash off. I'm currently using this and loving it:
UV Defender Bright & Clear SPF 50+ PA++++

L'Oreal Paris
UV Defender Bright & Clear SPF 50+ PA++++

Hi~ I use combination of both actually. It depends on my routine, if I need it fast I will go for physical sunscreen. Nowadays some sunscreen brands (which is physical sunscreen) are less white cast actually so yeah no worries.

I love chemical sunscreens! I had bad experiences with physical ones and they always leave a white cast and I didnt have the feeling that its is absorbed in my skin
