Description
What is it: A weightless, streak-free, adaptive skin perfector that delivers a naturally sun-kissed look for a healthy-looking summer appearance year-round.

Who is it for: All skin types, particularly those who desire natural-looking, streak-free color with no wait, no mess, no unpleasant smell, no DHA, and no commitment; women of all ages who appreciate flawless, even, sun-inspired color.

Why is it different: Perfects the appearance of skin in an instant for a sun-kissed, airbrushed glow. Formula features an adaptive skin perfector with unique, encapsulated pigment technology that adapts to your skin tone to deliver a streak-free, naturally sun-kissed look that stays on the skin until you choose to rinse it off. Skin-loving and weightless.

How do I use it: Apply to clean, dry skin in the morning, after cleansing. When applying, you will see the capsules break and release their pigment. Massage thoroughly onto skin to evenly distribute color and prevent any streaks from appearing. For more dramatic color, allow the first application to dry, then reapply another layer over it.

From philosophy.

FAQs

faqs

q: is this a bb cream?
a: in the buff is not a bb cream. it's an alternative to a self-tanner—a tan on demand that you can wash off.

q: does it have spf? how would you apply in conjunction with other moisturizers?
a: in the buff is not formulated with spf. the lightweight formula glides easily over your moisturizer or spf.

q: is it like the big skinny?
a: in the buff and the big skinny are different formulas, but both provide color to the skin and both wash off. what makes in the buff different is the hydrating, feather-light formula and the way it evens skin tone for a natural-looking, airbrushed finish.

q: how is it different from the original in the buff? is the original in the buff coming back?
a: the original in the buff will become a “back from the vault” item on qvc.

if you love in the buff silky finish body gloss, reach for it on days you just want moisture and radiance. however, when you want moisture, color, and glow, reach for this product. while they are both beautiful buff options, they are not intended to be layered together.

q: is it a spray form like the in the buff body gloss? how do i apply it?
a: it is not a spray application. the formula is similar to a daily body lotion that melts onto the skin.

in the morning, apply to clean, dry skin. wait for product to dry completely before dressing. for ideal results, exfoliate prior to application. when applying, you'll see the capsules break and release their pigment. massage thoroughly onto skin to evenly distribute color. for more dramatic color, allow the first application to dry, then reapply another layer over it.

q: does it provide a matte finish? does it have shimmer?
a: in the buff does not have shimmer. instead, it provides a radiant, natural-looking tan in an instant and hides imperfections.

q: is it pore refining?
a: the formula hides imperfections and evens skin tone, but does not absorb oil or refine pores.

q: is it good for fair skin?
a: yes, this is especially great on fair skin to give you a boost of radiance and color.

q: how many shades are offered?
a: in the buff is available in light and medium.

q: is it like the supernatural poreless flawless?
a: this isn't makeup, but it will give you a healthy-looking glow with the appearance of even skin tone and provide light hydration.

q: how long will it last on the skin before it washes off?
a: the rinse-off formula melts onto skin and wears beautifully until you choose to rinse it off.

q: would this be a good product for women over 60?
a: yes, it's ideal for all skin types and women of all ages.

q: will it stain your clothes?
a: it does not transfer to clothes. simply wait for the product to dry completely before dressing. if it does get on your clothes, it should wash out easily.

q: does it have a scent?
a: good news! in the buff does not have a scent.

philosophy in the buff sun-kissed face skin perfector 3.2 5 39 39
NOT WHAT I ORDERED I DIDN'T ORDER THIS, I HAVE THE ONE FOR THE ARMS, LEGS, ECT IN MED. THIS SEEMS TO BE MORE OF A FOUNDATION? IF IT'S ME IDK? I WILL KEEP TRYING TO MASTER THIS. QVC SAID YOU HAVE TIME TO TRY SO THAT IS ALL I CAN DO OR GOING BACK. LIKE I SAID I WILL TRY TO MASTER THIS? I GAVE IT 2 STARS JUST CAME SO IAM NOT SURE YET 08-05-13
Once you figure it out AMAZING There is a learning curve to this. It took me about 5 times to master it. Now I can not live with out it. I just order my 2nd bottle. If you do not sunless tan your face this is a must have to match you neck.It is buildable coverage too, I let the first application dry and then apply a second one. I use a round foundation brush and work it in like a foundation. Flawless and sweatproof. Does not break me out either. I would love auto delivery. 07-13-13
just a cream when I first started using this product, it did have little dark beads that would blend and give you a warm glow. the rest of the tube is just a cream....no color at all...would not order this again. 05-16-13
WILL NOT DO WITHOUT IT I ordered this product a few wks. ago and was not sure what to expect because of some of the bad reviews. To my surprise I LOVE IT ! For me it does exactly what it says it does. It gives me a sun kissed healthy looking glow.I have been using it daily expecting to find the faults in it .I havent found anything other then i will not be without it. I have found you do have to play with it a little and there doesnt seem to be alot of the bronzing beads in it.I have also found it seems to work better and stay longer if its applied over freshly cleaned skin without a moisturizer under it. If you are looking for a true bronzing look this product may not be for you however it certainly makes you look healthy with a bit of color and a natural glow. For me it does exactly what it says it does. I think its a GREAT product and i will continue to order it. I would love to see it avail. on auto delivery 04-19-13
GO BACK TO THE BIG SKINNY FROM YEARS AGO! I ordered this because it was not a self tanner,- one of the few available. It was good but nothing like the big skinny that was produced by Philosophy before the company changed. That tanner was sooooo perfect and was just ready to take off when it was dropped. There were rumors that the Philosophy company had changed hands. Many of us were so sad to see that product dropped because it covered age spots and viens on the hands legs and feet. The color was perfect with a light glow. Wish it would come back.. I know it would be a great seller. Especially if they could make it as color fast as this product seems to be. 04-17-13
Nothing Special I found that I had to put a lot on in order to find any beads at all. One side of my face was more sun-kissed than the other because the amount of beads that came out was different for each! I didn't feel as if this perfected my skin at all. 04-17-13
philosophy in the buff sun-kissed face skin perfe LOVE LOVE LOVE THANK YOU PHILOSOPHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 04-17-13
Not Up to Philosophy Standards I received this product and was so anxious to use it. The first day I used it was on Easter Sunday and I had to rewash my face and reapply all of my facial products and my usual foundation. I only used a small amount as was suggested during presentation but this product requires you to massage into the skin to get the beads to blend. They did not, I had little brown flakes all over my face (not a good look). I will be sending back. 04-12-13
great product This was my first Philosophy product to try....and it's a winner for me. I had a moisturizer cream on when I received my order, so I put some sun-kissed perfector on immediately....but it did what others mentioned, flaked off on my fingers. I washed my face and started over, with only the sun-kissed perfector, and the results were magical!! I ordered the Light as suggested, and it went on like velvet...my skin looked amazingly glowing and healthy, and it felt as if I had used a very good moisturizer, so I feel it gives many benefits all packaged in one product. I have been using it and will probably order the darker shade as summer moves on in!! I am very pleased with this product and hope it will continue to be a favorite for many other women. I did find I had to squeeze out a bit more to get to the beads....the first try just looked like regular foundation...so maybe you have to play with it a bit to get it started...wonder if it would mix better if it were in a jar instead of a tube?? 04-12-13
Great Stuff !! This is the perfect way to get a sun kissed look for the face. Yes, you need to rub it in well to burst the beads but it is flawless once you smooth it all in. I feel it's a great product and hope it becomes super sized soon !! 04-11-13
not a perfector by any stretch I have fair skin. Thought a sun kissed look without foundation would be nice. I spend lots of bucks maintaining my skin and this did absolutely nothing for it. Just spread a wierd color over the skin. If no SPF and would still need some foundation or at least concealer spot coverage didn't see the point. This was a way too expensive trial considering the price of the shipping return to the cost of the product. But back it went. 04-10-13
Not As Expected I loved the Hope In A Tinted Moisturizer which I can no longer find. Has it been discontinued? Accordingly, I decided to try this product as an option. Not at all as good. I did not like anything about it, so sadly I am returning it. Please bring back the Hope In A Tinted Moisturizer! 04-08-13
