$22 DEET Free Bug Spray That’s Worth The Hype

September 8, 2020
Bug spray

Living in Charleston means that it is mosquito season all year long! We only have a few months where the bugs aren’t biting. I have tried everything from having beds of rosemary in the yard, all-natural bug sprays, and not so natural bug sprays, and nothing has worked!

Golden Hour by Kinfield is here to change the game. The founder of the brand Nichole spent over a year visiting farms + researching some of the best and most effective citronella plants to fight against the mosquitoes until she landed on the perfect plant in Bali. Golden Hour is DEET free and checks off on all the things we care about most. It’s paraben-free, sulfate-free, vegan; the list goes on!

It applies clear and doesn’t leave any residue AT ALL. My favorite part is that it doesn’t smell or feel icky like bug sprays usually do. Honestly, the best smelling bug spray on the market, that could probably second as a perfume, haha.
