Hi guys! In my dressing table currently has a few open pads that I would like to tell you about in turn. One of them is PuroBio BB cream.
A bit by accident, I use not one or two, as is my habit, but as many products at once. But since they are already open, I take turns taking them, depending on the effect I expect. And the seasons, because they differ not only in the degree of coverage, but also in shade and consistency.
One of my strong favorites is BB Cream Sublime by PuroBIO. Because despite the fact that it is called bb cream, I treat it as my best, most covering foundation – reliable for big outings and photo sessions. Are you curious why? Please check out my review.

Already in the first place in Inci we have sage hydrolate, which has antibacterial and disinfecting properties. So it will definitely help people with mixed, oily and acne-prone skin. Next we have squalane, which is probably responsible for the great consistency and smoothing of the foundation. It also has moisturizing and softening properties, and helps other active ingredients penetrate deep into the skin.
The product also includes smoothing and reflecting silica, antioxidant vitamin E, nourishing apricot kernel oils, Shea butter, olive oil, sea water and chlorella algae containing many vitamins and minerals valuable for the skin.
Sensational composition, even for an organic foundation. So we can be sure that the cosmetic from PuroBio – unlike silicone, drugstore products – will not clog our pores. It will let the skin breathe and additionally take care of the proper level of its hydration.
My opinion about PuroBio BB cream:
The foundation is housed in a typical, soft plastic tube with aesthetic graphics. You can easily extract the right amount of the product, you do not pour too much of it, it has a creamy, light mousse consistency, it is not too thin and pouring.
PuroBio has a subtle, pleasant fragrance, slightly floral and powdery, which evaporates very quickly.
From the first use – the hand test, I was positively surprised, because there was no trace of white cream with pigments in it, as is usually the case with bb creams with natural ingredients. This product has the consistency and color of a typical foundation and spreads just as well. As if it was a drugstore product packed with silicones, and yet we know that it is not like that 🙂
It is very easy to apply with a makeup sponge, it glides easily on the face, blends into the skin and unifies the color. It covers very well, covers even larger imperfections, and in places where I need to hide something more, you can easily add another layer of foundation and it does not make any stains.
After proper application, the complexion looks beautiful and radiant, it does not have a flat mat effect. PuroBio foundation did not clog on any base, cream or concealer, did not emphasize wrinkles, did not clog pores, did not make stains – even when applied with my fingers.

Although sometimes it does make slight streaks when I apply it in a hurry, it is easy to correct them. Its spreadability is simply excellent, and the valuable ingredients contained in the formula penetrate and nourish the skin better.
I did not notice that it weighed during the day, after powdering it did not rub off too quickly, it did not roll, it lasted even many hours while traveling, when I was still touching my face and finally I overslept in it.
Regarding color, the color range of this Purobio series is unfortunately limited to only three shades. Light (01), medium (02) and dark (03). My medium shade seems a little too warm on the hand and paper, too dark, I even prepared myself that in winter I would have to lighten it a little with pigments, but somehow it blends into my skin with yellow undertones and doesn’t look too dark, orange or in any way weird. See for yourself how gently smeared on your hands, it is no longer visible.
Thanks to its light consistency, the product is very efficient, it also has great coverage, so a small amount is enough to cover the entire face, so the high price does not scare off so much, because it is enough for much more applications than a regular bb cream.
The cosmetic proved to me once and for all that a vegan and ecological foundation with a good composition can be as good or even much better than traditional makeup. There is no need to be afraid that it will not be enough for great exits. Because I must admit that in the past, when I used mainly mineral foundations and those from Alverde, I sometimes used drugstore samples. I was afraid of durability and insufficient covering of natural ones.
The greasable formula, composition and coverage in the PuroBio foundation are amazing. Taking into account also its adaptation to skin color and good performance, I believe that the price of the effects is not overstated. Even for me, although I must admit that I had to think carefully about such a large, one-time cosmetic expense. In the end, encouraged by many good opinions, I bought it for my birthday and I sincerely recommend it to everyone. Especially people who, like me recently, are taking the first steps in switching to the natural side also in makeup. And remember that we wear cosmetics on our face every day, for many hours and their composition is not indifferent to our skin.
It is worth investing in organic products, the appearance of our skin will more than reward us in a few years. The foundation from PuroBio meets all my expectations regarding the effect of natural makeup and I will definitely buy it again.
