Pinoys are falling further in love with anything K! K-pop, K-drama, K-skincare – you name it, we stan it! Even more so when any of these K-worlds collide for a collab. The latest of which is the launch of Deoproce Philippines’ ambassador for its newest K-Skincare line. Heartthrob Song Kang of Netflix’s Love Alarm fame is exclusively endorsing Deoproce Philippines’ Natural Green Caviar line.
“Though beauty endorsements are still dominated by women, it is quite refreshing and inspiring to see a male celebrity give marketing a makeover and democratize beauty for men. With Song Kang as its latest muse, Deoproce remains at the forefront of the skincare industry, blending the gender lines while still delivering innovative and effective products”, according to Deoproce in its press release.
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.
The Green Caviar 6-step routine
Step One (1)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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.
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.
