Fan-Favorite Gossip Account DeuxMoi Rates 7 Celebrity Face Creams
The influx of celebrity beauty brands today can feel like the intrusive questions you get from your parents about your love life: there’s an abundance of them, coming at you from every angle at an alarming rate and with little warning. Picking just one to try, then, can be tricky. You could go off your personal affinity to any one A-lister; Did you grow up watching their movies, like you might have with Brad Pitt? Do you listen to their music on Spotify, like you undoubtedly did with Ciara? What’s your inclination to keep up with the Kardashians?
Here’s the better option: you could let everybody’s favorite gossip account DeuxMoi help you sort through the noise. There is nobody more well-versed in all things celebrity, after all. (For the unfamiliar, DeuxMoi is a wildly popular Instagram account that posts blind items on Hollywood’s elite – from nanny secrets to relationship drama and everything in between. If you came here for the juice, welcome.)
A self-proclaimed curator of pop culture, DeuxMoi knows what their audience likes, doesn’t like, and is insatiably curious about. This, of course, extends to celebrity brands, which makes them the perfect product tester. We decided to start with skin care – the fastest growing market in beauty, projected to reach $146 billion (!) by 2028, according to Fortune Business Insights (hence why so many stars have thrown their hats in the ring) – and honed in on the most universal subcategory: face moisturizers.
From Scarlett Johansson’s The Outset to Kim Kardashian’s Skkn by Kim to Idris Elba’s S’able Labs, there were plenty to choose from. So DeuxMoi put seven celebrity-owned face creams to the test – noting on texture, scent, packaging, and price point – and spilled her unfiltered opinion on each. Spoiler alert: “Out of all the testing I’ve done so far – I’ve tested celebrity-owned lip glosses and alcohol lines – this category is by far the most consistent where I would use almost all the products,” says DeuxMoi. “People sh*t on celebrity skin care, but I’m blown away and surprised at how good these are.”
