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
