Dieux Skin is a brand that I was only just recently discovered, and not only am I impressed by their products that I have tried, but also by the mission of this brand.

About Dieux,

At Dieux we want you to understand exactly what you’re buying and how it works.
Our experiences as consumers and beauty industry professionals fueled us in creating a brand that is religious about results and explains how we get to where we are. Dieux’s products are price transparent, rooted in science, accountable and responsibly sourced. We're genuinely invested in doing better for everyone because we want to set a new standard in skincare.

To us, it’s simple; products should do what they say they are going to do. Safety and striving for sustainability aren’t selling points, they’re the baseline. We use packaging that works to do better environmentally, source vegan ingredients and finally formulate to European standards for stability. We don’t believe in miracles. We believe in rituals that produce results. 

Our brand is founded by a clinical cosmetic chemist, a career brand builder and a multi-hyphenate creative. Ultimately, we want to see more accountability, honesty and nuance within the beauty industry. Our aim is to create comprehensive products that address key skin concerns. Our products are formulated to ultimately simplify routines so you can Dieux less.

Ingredients that follow the highest global regulatory guidelines in addition to clinically vetting each claim so products do what they say they’re going to do.

We believe in pricing everyone can understand. That's why we share the cost of formulas, packaging, labor, payment processing and shipping.

A stabilized and thoughtful selection of active ingredients means you only get the good stuff from the first to last drop.

That’s why we only test on humans, vet labor practices of sourcing and packaging, are vegan and cruelty-free.

Dieux Skin Instant Angel Lipid Rich Facial Moisturizer is a thoughtfully created cruelty-free and vegan moisturizer that is richly moisturizing. It is a peptide and ceramide-rich formulation that is barrier-supportive and immensely moisturizing for dehydrated skin and skin with a compromised barrier. It is rich and thick, and yet it melts into the skin quickly leaving behind an ethereal glow. It is fragrance-free, with no detectable aroma, and it makes the skin feel so soft, smooth and supple. If you have acne-prone skin, this cream will likely be too rich for you, and you might want to try Dieux Air Angel Gel Cream instead. However, if you have dry or dehydrated skin, then this lipid-rich moisturizer is truly heavenly!
According to Dieux,

Instant Angel is your skin barrier’s protector. Deeply moisturizing, this nourishing face cream supports and repairs skin while giving an ethereal glow. 

Using a blend of phytosterols, free fatty acids, palmitoyl hexapeptide-12, dipalmityl hydroxyproline, meadowestolide, ceramide NG, glycerin, urea, squalane and sodium PCA, Instant Angel gives lasting hydration while reinforcing the skin’s barrier leaving it feeling strong, smooth and firm.

The result is an unfragranced, rich moisturizer that feels like silk without leaving the tell-tale *residue* of a richer cream

$1 of every sale of Instant Angel goes to an organization fighting for reproductive justice.

Note: If you have acne-prone skin, this is a richer product therefore has risks. While it tested as non-comedogenic, always patch test as you may have a reaction. This cream is good for: dehydrated skin and a compromised barrier.

Directions: Gently massage a quarter sized dollop of Instant Angel onto your face and neck. This cream should be used after cleansing and application of serums and toners. If tolerated, skin can be slightly damp prior to application. If used during the day, always follow with SPF.
