I recently sat down with one of Benefit’s most loyal Benebabes, Sheri, at our Chestnut Street Boutique. She has been coming to Benefit for nearly 12 years and owns almost every product. I asked her some questions about her favorite products and her Benefit experiences. Here is what she had to say…
How did you first get hooked on Benefit?
When my daughter was in high school she wanted to get her legs waxed at the Benefit Boutique Chestnut and had me take her. While I was there I tried the Benefit brow waxing for the first time and became absolutely hooked! Prior to that I would get waxed at the nail salon, where it would be touch-and-go and very inconsistent. After that first Benefit brow wax, the Chestnut Boutique became my go-to place for brows. One day I was feeling brave and was talked into getting my brows tinted… that was fantastic! I also got hooked on benetint, without it I think I look too pale…like a ghost!
What are your favorite products?
I have many favorite products. My everyday faves are some kind-a gorgeous, you rebel, total moisture facial cream, erase paste, stay don’t stray, the eye shadows…I think everything works for everyday. Some of my absolute faves are benetint, BADgal, bathina take a picture. I think the products make great gifts are perfect stocking stuffers for my daughter.
What are your special tips & tricks?
I like to use benetint before I go to bed at night so I have rose colored lips when I wake up. We go boating a lot so it’s perfect for waking up with a little color after spending the night on the boat.
How often do you come to the Boutique?
I actually come in quite a bit because I live a block and a half away. I come by walking my dog and stop in at least once a week, sometimes more than that! And I buy a lot of products!
What keeps you coming back?
It’s a great experience. The girls here are so friendly. The skincare products are very moisturizing and very soft. It’s fun and I just got hooked on it. The overall experience is just genuinely fun. You come in, have a good time. I kinda just can’t stay away from here!
If you were stuck on a desert island with 1 Benefit product, what would it be and why?
How do you dress up and down with makeup?
Using less foundation and less eye makeup for dressing down. But I always use mascara- always! I’ll wear deeper lipsticks to dress things up.
In your opinion, what is the best thing about Benefit?
The best thing about Benefit is products, honestly. The marketing is also fabulous. They do a really great job of the packaging and just overall the customer service. It’s just so much fun!
It was such a please to meet Sheri! Thank you!
