Skin Restoring Moisturizer | 45g
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 un-fragranced rich moisturizer that feels like silk without leaving the tell-tale *residue* of a richer cream.
If you do not wish to have a squeeze key to help get every last drop, please remove from your cart as it is auto-added. Please see "how to" section to learn how to use the squeeze key.
Note: if you have acne-prone skin this is a richer product. While it tested as non-comedogenic, always patch test.

- Deeply moisturizes and hydrates skin
We ship everywhere in the continental U.S. except Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico. We are working on international shipping but need to redo all packaging to accommodate multiple languages with our formula. We appreciate your patience but for the foreseeable future, we offer US shipping only.
For our wonderful Canadians, please note that it is illegal to ship any product containing certain ingredients from the U.S. to Canada. The Forever Eye Mask and Awakening Hand Sanitizers ships to Canada due to regulations around accessories vs. formulas, but we have blocked orders for our Deliverance serum. Love you! Let us know if we can talk to Trudeau about this nonsense!

Why an aluminum tube?
In the US, we came to terms with the reality that plastics are just not recycled very often. Aluminum is easily recycled, even moreso than glass.
Our tubes are made of 30% recycled aluminum with our goal to be 100% recycled materials by the end of 2023.
Why a squeeze key?
Every order of Instant Angel comes with a squeeze key to ensure you get every last drop.
To prevent Instant Angel from gushing out (as can happen with aluminum tubes), don’t turn the squeeze key until the cap is open.
Will my tube splooge?
Yes, your tube will slightly seep out on the first open or after plane rides (due to cabin pressure). Just be prepared with a set of hands, a plate, or the cap so you don’t waste a drop. Tapping your tube upside down lightly (cap facing upward) prior to opening will also stop leaking.

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!
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*!!
