Our Packaging

Our philosophy is accountability matters more than marketing. If we can make a product that gets you to buy or use less, we will make it. And with packaging, the reality is, even in using the most recycled material in America, almost 35% still ends up in landfills. With that our goal is to make the least impactful trash that is the most likely to get recycled. The best trash trash if you will.

Price transparency

It’s simple, you should understand what you’re paying for and why things cost what they do.

The best. Period.

I have tried sooo many different moisturizers over the years, and this one blows all of the others out of the water. I absolutely love the texture and how glowy it makes my skin look. I’m almost done with my first tube and know this will continue to be a staple in my (simple) routine. Cannot wait to see what comes next from Dieux!

For the softest, dreamiest skin

This is my first skincare product from dieuX (I have the reusable eye masks and love them). I generally find that deep moisturizers are too heavy for my skin, and end up being too oily. This one is not! The texture is so lovely, it feels like a cloud once you let it settle into your skin for a moments and it’s great for day and night. I tend to use it at night and then during the day on days when my skin needs a little extra love, but you could definitely use it more regularly. This is a decadent but easy to work with moisturizer, highly recommend!

Great for combination skin

Love instant angel for my combination, acne prone skin. I use about a third less than the recommended amount but my skin is hydrated, clearer than its been in a while and overall healthy and glowing! Love it!

Holy Hydration

I feel like I have been searching forever for a great moisturizer that checks all the boxes. I have dry, slightly sensitive skin(not extremely though) and very mild rosacea. I LOVE the texture of this cream. It’s spreads so easily and absorbs so well. I really feels like it’s delivering a lot of moisture AND hydration. I usually need a second application late afternoon, but that’s just my super dry skin. I usually look for moisturizers with ceramides to keep my skin happy. It has taken me so long to find one I really like so I probably will repurchase! I use this as my daytime moisturizer.

the holy grail of moisturizers!

throughout my entire skincare journey, moisturizer has always felt like the hardest step to get just right for my skin. other moisturizers i’ve used have either been too rich & caused breakouts or, have been too light & not moisturizing for my skin (for context i have combo-dry acne prone skin) it’s actually an understatement to say that this moisturizer is heaven sent!! immediately upon receiving my package i actually washed my face again & tried this baby on. hoooooly smokes, this is actually unlike anything i’ve ever tried. when it comes out of the tube, it looks like it’s going to be a thick paste moisturizer but when you start rubbing it into (ideally damp) skin, it just feels so lightweight! this is some serious magic!!! it’s just perfect for my difficult skin & i love how the moisture actually lasts all day. i appreciate that while it’s marked as having a dewy finish, the finish you get can fully be controlled by the amount you use. i’m so happy to have found instant angel & while this review is mainly based on first impressions, i haven’t used it long enough to see the long-term benefits but, i can easily see myself using this moisturizer until the end of time lol. ty charlotte, joyce & the rest of the dieux team for making a literal work of art, it’s just mwah *chef’s kiss*!!
