Pupa Professionals BB CREAM + PRIMER for all skin types, review

Hello my lovely readers, to start  this new year on a high note I decided to share with you my impressions on a BB cream that I really enjoy in my daily make-up. It is the Pupa Professionals BB CREAM + PRIMER for all skin types. It is a two-in-one product that has both primer and base for a fast and easy make-up.


This BB cream is an innovative product that incorporates a face primer for smoothing and unifying the color of the face with the hydration and luminosity of a BB cream. It is an oil-free product that is non comedogenic and has an SPF of 20 which makes it perfect for oilier skins. it comes in three shades : 001 Nude, 002 Sand and 100 Light Nude.

The primer effect is created by the latest generation silicone polymers that create a barrier effect between the skin and make-up products, with a double action  of smoothing the skin and making the make-up last longer.

The Evodia (Bee Tree) extract efficiently fights the free radicals for an anti-aging effect.

It can be worn as a base alone for a no-make-up look or as a base before foundation for more coverage. It comes in a 50 ml/1.69 oz plastic recipient and has a valability of 12 months. It does not have a dispensing pump, the product being squeezed from the tube.



The shade I have is 001 Nude and it works very well for my skin. The coverage is light and it can be a little buildable but it does not reach medium. It is hydrating and creamy on the skin which brings a feel of comfort which I like.

I squeeze the equivalent of a pump and apply it on the skin with my beloved Sigma flat kabuki brush, if I feel I need more coverage I add another thin layer. The result is a uniform color of the skin, a good layer of hydration and the 20 SPF protection, all in one. Easy and fast, the way I love it!

It does not cover large spots, blemishes or other more serious skin problems, you need a good concealer for them. But it does give the skin a healthy glow and keeps it safe from the damaging effects of the sun.

I have a combination to oily skin (in the summer time) and I really like this BB cream for the daily use. In my case setting it with a powder is a must! It has a slight dewy look and I like my matte free T-zone. After setting it with powder it lasts around 8 hours without fading. In the summer time it fades around the nose and on the forehead due to the heat and perspiration.

Here is the Pupa Professionals BB CREAM + PRIMER in a full make-up look below.


All in all, I really like the Pupa Professionals BB CREAM + PRIMER for all skin types for a day to day use. You can find it in all Pupa stores and online at the price of 44 ron, now reduced from 55 ron. I think it is a good price for 50 ml of product. If you don’t like to wear a lot of make-up and you need hydration and SPF protection, this is the right product for you! Go and check it out in the stores and ask for a sample, I am sure you will like it!

If you liked the make-up look I can share the products I used in another post, just let me know. Tell me Have you used this BB cream ? What are your impressions on it ? Until next time,   Love, M

  • I want to use BB cream but alone, as a base, for a no make-up look.

    • Monica Tone

      It looks natural on the skin and it is quite hydrating. Try it in store!

    I used once BB cream and I was dissapointed..not a big fan!

    • Monica Tone

      It depends on your skin’s needs, if you need coverage the BB cream is not for you.

  • Primer, BB cream and SPF 20? Me want it 🙂

    • Monica Tone

      Yes, I simply adore multifunctional products, they make our busy life so much easier 🙂

  • Bianca

    În Iași s-a deschis recent un magazin Pupa și mă bucur că ai făcut acest review, pentru a-mi putea face și eu o impresie asupra produselor oferite de ei. BB cream-ul pare o achizitie bună pentru vară.

    • Monica Tone

      De asta am si facut acum postarea, au reduceri frumoase in magazine si am zis ca ajuta recenzia. Nu am avut contact cu prea multe produse Pupa dar ce am, imi plac. Voi mai reveni cu cateva recenzii in curand. Daca ai nevoie de acoperire mai mare BB cream-ul este intr-adevar bun in sezonul cald.

  • Pare super interesant, chiar voiam sa ma duc in Pupa pentru ca am vazut ca au sales acum.

    • Monica Tone

      Da, mai sunt inca cateva tipuri de BB Cream de la ei, ma intereseaza sa incerc varianta pt ten gras sa vad daca este vreo diferenta. Este pe lista de cumparat. Cred ca voi trece si eu prin magazine sa vad ce si cum.

  • Arata bine pe tenul tau! Dragut si machiajul acesta pe care il porti! 🙂

    • Monica Tone

      Multumesc mult. Da imi place cum arata pe ten si cum se aseaza machiajul peste el. Si suprinzator, setat cu pudra rezista toata ziua fara problem.

  • Oana Alexandru

    Se vede bine pe tenul tau, si mie mi-a placut, te pup <3

    • Monica Tone

  • Denisa Roman

    The price is good and it looks nice. Does it have a dewy finish because the pictures don’t really show that. Seems nice!

    • Monica Tone
