Mosquito Repellent

Golden Hour™

$22

Rated 4.5 out of 5
Based on 442 reviews

A clean bug spray that works—naturally.

This first-of-its-kind formula repels mosquitos with a unique strain of Indonesian citronella that's more effective than any other we've found. But don't worry, we put it through independent trials just to be sure. Kinfield Golden Hour™ does the trick, and smells amazing, too—think a little bit citrus, a little bit vanilla. There's a reason this one keeps selling out.

Size: 3oz / 89ml

Golden Hour actually smells good. I’ve even had strangers ask what scent I’m wearing. But more importantly: It works. I’ve tested Golden Hour both in the city and countryside, and so far I’m happily bite-free.

This is definitely not Off!, and that’s exactly what makes us want to put it on.

I can whole-heartedly swear on all the mosquitos in the world that Golden Hour works.

A DEET-free bug spray that doesn’t stink—and works really, really well. My mother, who is even more beloved by biting insects than I am, wore it on a marshy family hike and didn’t get a single nibble.

We tested it all last summer and...didn’t get bitten once.

FAQs

You bet! Golden Hour's performance has been tested against Aedes Aegypti mosquitoes through two rounds of double-blind testing by an independent lab. While independent results depend on your skin's unique biome, the lab confirmed an average of 3+ hours of protection time for most people. We have hundreds of rave reviews, too!

Addicted to the smell

I absolutely love the smell of Golden Hour. It makes me feel clean and lemony. Honestly, I forget it’s to thwart mosquitoes.

It works

I was skeptical at first but gave it a chance anyway and it paid off. I've had some bites on the areas that I missed so be thorough with your spraying but it definitely works when you apply it evenly. It has a strong smell so spray and walk away from the area to avoid inhaling fumes. Otherwise, the smell is citrusy and pleasant.
