Chocolate Sun's Marigold Moisturizer for the Face is a nice light sunscreen suitable for daily use. There is a light fragrance that reminds me of citrus or flowers. The formula itself absorbs quickly and won't leave your skin feeling greasy. It rates about a 4 on the EWG Skin Deep database, mainly due to the inclusion of Octinoxate (sunscreen). With the removal of this ingredient, this would likely be an even safer sunscreen. However, if you're looking for a nice, mild facial sunscreen, this is definitely much better than conventional alternatives and would suit a wide variety of skin types.
