In this thread, I'll share my experiences with these sunscreens.
As always, your mileage may vary. Please remember that my experiences with these products are personal and may be different for you. Just because it does/doesn't work for me, does not mean it will affect you similarly 🙏🏼

*I use a two-finger amount every time with my middle finger as a measuring unit. I apply one layer first, then a second.
Reapplying is important to ensure your skin is well protected at all times, especially since UV levels differ by the hour.
☀️ Bioré UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence ☀️
A gel type sunscreen. Quite thick but spreads nicely on my skin and absorbs well. I notice a cooling sensation, presumably from the xylitol. It has a mild citrusy/chemical scent but it goes away.
BUT, I believe @skinnyondinie uses this and she has oily skin, so of course, it depends on what you like.
I think this is the best sunscreen for my skin so far. I barely experienced negative reactions with this one. It's very light on my skin even after two layers and helps me stay matte without drying me out.
I was hoping this could be a "bigger" version of the Perfect Protect Milk but it feels different and I'm not a fan.
I was excited for this because I wanted a gel sunscreen and it's a good size. You should know by now I don't like small sunscreens 🙈
Another gel type sunscreen. In terms of texture, I'd say this is slightly thicker than the other gel sunscreens I mentioned earlier. It has a yellowish tint, similar to the Bioré one, and a similar citrusy scent.
This is the very first sunscreen I tried when I began using sunscreen religiously about two years ago.
The ingredients changed a bit somewhere down the line (last pic is the latest one that I know of).
I REALLY like this sunscreen but this is the one that ruined my skin to begin with 😩
@ImanAbdulRahim goes into more detail about chem filters in her thread 👇🏼
I got this because I felt like my skin was too sensitive for any other sunscreen. But I kinda hate this one 🙈
Another one I like but doesn't work well for me. It doesn't give me any bad reaction but it pills like CRAZY.
This was highly recommended by quite a few people but alas, it doesn't suit me. That's why you cannot simply believe any recommendation. Everything reacts differently for different people.
This would probably be good for oily skin.
I looooooove the smell of this sunscreen! It smells like cocoa butter 😍
(The ingredients list is on the box and I threw the box away before taking a picture and I tried Googling the list but couldn't find it I'm sorry 😩)
