My Opinion:

ampm (a product from Taiwan) has recently landed in HK, and I've wanted to try out some of their skincare products. I've picked up a few items right before X'mas and have been using this sunblock since December.

The reason for picking this product was because it claims to be a pure physical sunscreen, and not knowing what it was I've decided to try it out.

Before writting this article, I've google for physical sunscreen, and finally realize that most of my previous sunscreen were all physical...., and I'm feeling kind of dumb, for getting something that I've always been using....., but if you are interested, most of the sunscreen that contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are physical sunscreen, they tend to deflect the sun rays, while chemical sunscreen will absorb the sun rays.

Now back to the product, this sunscreen is thick and it does leave a white cast, which is consistent with most of the physcial sunscreen, while most of the chemical suncreen tend to have a runnier texture.

Although this sunscreen does have a thick texture, it didn't leave my skin oilier than usual, but I think I would prefer a chemical sunscreen for the summer.
