Great product, easy to apply, smells nice, doesn't leave you greasy and it works!!!
I definitely recommend it!
Was very skeptical but can honestly say this stuff works!!! I was at my wits end with nothing working. Amazing stuff
So great to find a repellant that actually works and doesn’t make me smell like toilet cleaner ❤️
Great product - works really well at keeping the bugs off, pleasant smelling, not sticky or oily & a little bit goes along way. Just wish the sizing came in larger options.
I am living in NZ. I recently purchased Fend via the internet in Australia - it arrived quickly and the service and communication from Tim was excellent. Last week I was camping in one of our National Parks along side heaps of mosquitoes. Did not get bitten once!!!! Love the fact that the active ingredient is an amino acid derivative that occurs naturally and that Fend is a gentle product that is kind on your skin and it does not have a strong smell.
Awesome product. Working on my kids who used to suffer from terrible bites!
The best repellent that actually works. My son suffers from eczema and has allergic reactions when bitten by mozzies so it was important to find something gentle on the skin that was also effective at preventing bites. This did both those and more. Easy to apply, non greasy, sticky and no strong smells. Highly recommend!
This product was recommended to me by a parent at school. It is a very useful product. I had some problems with my order at first, but after contacting the customer service this was resolved in a very timely and satisfactory manner. I will continue to use this product.
A beautiful product. Fendi is gentle on the nose and skin, with no overpowering scent or greasy residue. I recently used it to great effect in Uganda. An innovative and effective repellent.
My husband and I have recently been traveling in various parts of Europe during their summer. Fend became our best friend!
This product really worked as we put it to the test in an area that was experiencing a particularly bad season for mosquitos.
Gentle on the skin, non sticky and not smelly for the win.
Highly recommend ✔️
Not sticky and smelly like other products - highly recommend
This is an amazing insect repellent! It has a natural smell and feel to it which is different to other insect repellents on the market. It’s also safe for our baby which is perfect for what we need as young parents.
Fend gets 5 stars for so many reasons. Firstly, it works! Secondly, it goes on so easily when wrestling little humans and doesn't smell which is a big win, especially with toddlers. And finally, it's gentle on skin. My son suffers from eczema so a gentle but effective repellent is hard to come by. You won't be disappointed. The current size is great for the handbag or travelling but my only request would be that they had it in more sizes!
This not only works perfectly, but it smells so good that I wore it on my wedding day! The lotion spreads easily over the skin so a small pump goes a long way. It also lasts all night if you tend to get mozzie bites while you sleep.
Really great for babies, nice texture and doesn’t irritate sensitive skin. 2 month old had been getting bitten in bed at night by mozzies but fend is definitely fending them off.
Clinically proven across 4 species of disease-carrying mosquitoes, Fend® is the longest-lasting DEET-free repellent available. Apply once for protection all day or all night.
How it works.
Rather than harsh chemical pesticides, Fend® uses an active ingredient called IR3535® (ethyl butylacetylaminopropionate), a gentle amino acid derivative.
It works by confusing insects' sensory receptors, disrupting their ability to detect carbon dioxide and therefore their ability to find and bite their host.
IR3535® is considered a safer and more environmentally friendly alternative to DEET.
Protected by Fend.
40 brave trial participants stuck their arm in a cage with 55 hungry mosquitoes. With Fend®, the earliest bites occurred after 13 hours.
Not protected by Fend.
The unprotected arms were attacked within seconds.

PARTICIPANTS: 35 participants - 28 women, 7 men - aged 18-63.
METHODOLOGY: The repellent was applied to hypoallergenic adhesive strips. Strips were applied to participants for 24 hours.

RESULTS: No side effects (erythema, edema, papule or vesicle) were detected in the area of application.
CONCLUSION: The product did not cause photosensitisation and was not shown to be phototoxic and support the 'hypoallergenic' appeal.
