Looks like a great routine, is it working? Just to mention, Dr V said on her YT channel that it's better to use actives like Alpha Arbutin in the PM.

Actually ignore this, she said you can use it AM or PM :)

I am worries that the Inzincable sunscreen might leave too much of a white cast for your skin tone? I'd select something from these products: https://whatsinmyjar.com/search/sunscreens?filter_type=%22Chemical%22%20only&countries=United%20States&sortBy=Irritancy

Thanks for your post. Inzincable does not leave any white cast. I just find it a little expensive for the size, so I top up with a cheaper sunscreen SPF 50 for sensitive skin.

Apparently mineral sunscreen is better for POC trying to clear hyperpigmentation (Dr V & Dr Alexis Stephens on Youtube). From the list, I've tried the MD solar sciences SPF 50 which I like. It does have a silicone feel to it, meaning that it feels like it sits on top of the skin. So some may not like it. But I'm ok with it & it also looks good under makeup.
