What it is:
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.
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. A gel-cream version will be launching in 2023 with more specific acne-prone skin testing!
What it's good for:
- Dehydrated skin
- Compromised barrier
How to use:
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.

In a clinical study of 50 people (tested on white, Black, Asian, Indigenous and Hispanic skin), an independent lab measured the impact of Instant Angel to understand moisturization and wrinkle depth reduction claims. Conducted in the winter in Winnipeg Canada, Instant Angel was found to be hydrating and moisturizing along with helping reduce the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over the course of 56 days. In a consumer perception study, 97% of people found that Instant Angel hydrated the skin, 88% of people felt that skin felt moisturized throughout the day in the winter, and that 85% of people felt that even in the morning skin was still moisturized.
Our head of product and master of cosmetic chemist Joyce de Lemos created the protocol to be executed by the third party lab. Samples used created by Dieux’s lab and blinded.
Love the packaging and the product is BEYOND great. [The] Dieux team are AMAZING! They have 10/10 customer service:)
When we say “Instant Angel” we mean you’ll instantly get a hit of hydration and moisturization. In extremely dry or low humid climates, a little bit of an occlusive on top (think petrolatum or ointments) will help lock in moisture even further.
Skin feels more plump, soothed and balanced.
Remember to wear SPF and that with changing seasons your needs may change as well!
Also remember to take pictures prior to use, when results are gradual and consistent it can be hard to see the visible results from your rituals ✨✨
At Dieux Skin, we care about being transparent about our products and we know you do too. From our pricing to our sustainability practices, know exactly where we stand.
It's simple, you should understand what you're paying for and why things cost what they do.

love this stuff
So creamy and absorbs beautifully leaving my skin feeling balanced and nourished!
Best moisturizer EVER
I have always struggled with blackheads and so I've been so hesitant to try other moisturizers besides my trusty Olay, but I knew it was time to level up. Charlotte is the best and recommended Instant Angel for my skin type and LET ME TELL YOU! My skin feels so hydrated and I have had zero breakouts since using it (over a month). My chin is usually a mess when my aunt flow is in town, and using this plus Deliverance everyday has balanced my skin where I haven't had to worry about a thing. Literally saved my skin. Thank you for making such an amazing product!
Wanted to love, but clogged my pores.
I have dry, sensitive skin (but I'm not acne prone). After years of using a different moisturizer, something changed in the formula and my skin was destroyed and I was suffering from contact dermatitis, so I found this and used it to restore my skin barrier. It does not irritate my face or cause any redness, and I do think it helped restore my skin barrier a little, but it clogs my pores SO terribly. I used an entire tube and convinced myself it was worth it to get another because it really did moisturize my face and my contact dermatitis was gone, but during the two weeks between tubes my face/neck completely cleared up and as soon as I started using the moisturizer again, the blackheads and clogged pores came back with a vengeance. I'm really upset because I love the formula and really do think it's deeply moisturizing without being greasy, but as someone who has never dealt with clogged pores in their adult life, I can't deal with or keep up with the blackheads and random whiteheads that pop up on my neck and chest. I also wasn't willing to add more exfoliants into my routine just to keep using this lotion so unfortunately I'm going to have to call it quits.
Hi Jess--please email us at orders@dieuxskin for a refund, sounds like it didn't work out for you at all.
probably never going back
I just purchased my third tube of Instant Angel. I haven't been able to find anything that is this hydrating at such a great price point! My skin is dry and prone to redness. The combo of Instant Angel, Deliverance, and Tower 28's SOS spray has done wonders for my skin. I'm less red, more hydrated, and am getting less breakouts. Found my holy trinity ::prayer hands emoji::
!!! this makes us so happy
Best Moisturizer Out There
this is my favorite moisturizer. I went through one tube already and this is my second one. I have very dry skin and this has helped with the dryness so much!
How long does it last?
Why an aluminum tube?
My tube leaks, how do I fix this?
Is it pregnancy safe?
Is it a rich cream?
Why don’t you sell internationally?
