What is Green Caviar?

Green caviar or sea grapes is locally referred to as Lato – commonly served fresh as a salad with tomato, onions, and green mango to complement all-time pinoy favorites grilled fish or pork.

As a key skin-care ingredient, Green Caviar helps fight signs of ageing by boosting collagen production and keeps skin hydrated by retaining moisture. It is rich in vitamins, minerals to help brighten and strengthen the skin.

The Deoproce Green Caviar Line has 6 products to complete your 6-step K-skincare  Routine. As a rule of thumb, you should use start from the product with the thinnest to the thickest formulation.

Step One (1)

Deoproce Green Caviar Cleansing Water

Green Caviar Cleansing Water (Php690) to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oils. A soaked cotton sheet was able to get rid off my liquid eyeliner in 2-3 strokes. 

Step Two (2) 

Deoproce Green Caviar Cleansing Foam

Green Caviar Cleansing Foam (Php590) to completely remove dirt and provide gentle exfoliation. The tightly packed matte foam has super fine microbeads that turns into a rich creamy lather. Most cleansers make my skin feel tight after a good wash but this one made my skin feel softer.

Step Three (3)

Deoprice Green Caviar Toner

Green Caviar Toner (Php 790) to hydrate and prepare the skin for the serum and moisturizer phases, as well as get rid of stubborn traces of makeup or dirt. Listen to the pop of frizz when you remove the seal of freshness on your first use. 

Step Four (4)

Deoproce Green Caviar Vitamin C Ampoule

Green Caviar Vitamin C Ampoule (Php1,490) to brighten, moisturize, and protect the skin with its highly concentrated active ingredients. The formula  has the right viscosity for a serum – it’s not runny, nor thick. Also, it has the faintest scent among all the products despite its yellowish color, which I like. 

Step Five (5)

Deoproce Green Caviar Moisturizer

Green Caviar Cream Moisturizer (Php1,490) to hydrate the skin without the sticky heavy residue. The whipped light cream gives an immediate boost of hydration to the skin. I use this at night and wake up to plump hydrated skin in the morning. 

Step Six (6)

Deoproce Green Caviar Skin Perfecting Tint

Green Caviar Skin Perfecting Tint with SPF 30 PA++ (Php790) to even out your complexion and give extra protection against the sun’s harmful rays. This is a great base to add to your makeup routine but can we worn alone if you want go for a lighter feel or more natural effect. I’m an NC30/35 and it is perfect for my skin tone. Important: this is meant for your morning routine. 

The verdict

I enjoyed using all the products from the Deoproce Green Caviar line and  especially love that the scent is kept very mild – reminiscent of fresh watermelon juice. Most importantly, it stayed true to its promise of skin hydration. I highly recommend the Deoproce Green Caviar line to those with dry to normal skin. Those with oily skin may benefit from the toner and cleansing products.

College courses aren’t the only opportunity for further education, and there are a surprising number of options available for Filipinos who want to do more skills development online. This brand new world has closed some doors but opened others, and there’s no better time than the present to take a chance. Here are a few of the best online learning platforms in the Philippines for both students and professionals.

Cultivating a Queer-Friendly Culture in the Workplace

Though it is still a hard pill to swallow, we have to address the fact that discrimination continues to be a way of life for a lot of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) employees. A well-written piece by GLAAD’s Michaela Krejcova explains that over 40% of gays, lesbians, and bisexuals have gone through employment harassment and mistreatment at some point in their professional lives. We have not even mentioned the 90% of transgender people who have experienced the same ordeal – if not worse. In essence, this is not only bad for LGBTQ workers, but also bad for companies as a whole.
