Brand Story

Once upon a time in a small Indiana town, a baby was born... No, wait a minute... make that two babies. As the identical twins grew, they developed rather peculiar habits.

The one known as Jean wore spaghetti in her hair and used the glowin' behinds of fireflies to create elaborate face paintings. Jane, on the other hand, spent hours counting Raisinettes, biting them in half, then trading the smaller versions to her younger cousins for real-size M&Ms. "Miraculous," said the townsfolk. "Jean has a right brain, Jane has a left... together these two just might do something crazy!"

And they did! In 1976, the Ford twins created a unique San Francisco beauty boutique with a whimsical candy store atmosphere. "Who says makeup has to be serious to be good?" they said. The shop grew famous for delivering quick fixes for every gal's peskiest beauty dilemmas, and with a "double" dose of wackiness mixed with know how, the twins successfully built Benefit Cosmetics into a global beauty brand. The "friskiest luxury brand" now has over 2,000 counters in more than 30 countries.

Jean's daughters and Jane's nieces, Maggie and Annie Ford-Danielson, are Benefit's next generation, brand ambassadors and global trend artists in their own right, eager to infuse the brand with eclectic tastes. The fab four are guaranteed to keep the creative juices flowing, ensuring that Benefit continue to deliver feel-good products for every woman.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent primer! Love this primer, the texture is smooth and leaves a matte finish which is great to then follow with foundation. Helps my make -up stay put for longer. A bit pricey, but you only need to use a small amount at a time. 18 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Benefit The Porefessional It makes the face smoother and fills in pores but the demonstrator said that it smoothed out wrinkles which it is not so effective for. Quite a good product though and demonstrator was very good. 21 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by POREtastic! I have really bad scared skin and suffer terribly with adult spots.I thought hey ho whats another purchase down the drain,I've tried most things. However it is actually really good and makes me feel nice. So I bought the foundations too.They,re oil free and hide my blemishes.I use the porefessional all the time.It,s a relief to have something work. 25 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by if i could give more stars i would I cannot live without this product. I use it all the time and it does wonders for my skin.. I can use this product then all I need is a bit of concealer and that is my skin done.. so I can carry on with the rest of my make up... It is every girls MUST HAVE 18 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by love!!!!!! this product is brilliant! stays on all day and keeps make up looking fresh and flawless. The perfect base coat, could definitely not live without it. 23 March 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect for oily skin types! This product is a must have for oily and any other types of skin that need to hide those nasty pores. I couldn't actually believe how well the product worked when I applied my sample size I got from GLAMOUR magazine, so when I ran out I naturally came onto the John Lewis website to re-purchase! 20 July 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Pore-fect! I tried a sample of this product - and I actually prefer it to foundation! It doesn't rub off, stays on all day and it has completely evened out my skin tone. My pores have been minimised, and it generally makes your skin look so natural and clear. Fantastic product, and perfect for wearing on holiday when foundation is too heavy! 04 July 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by AVERAGE PRIMER! This primer.. is not great at all. It leaves my skin very bitty and I have little jelly type bits that come off once applied.. it does feel lovely and smooth on the skin. But it didnt hide my pores or spots so I dont think I will be buying this again!!! I prefer that gal alot more!! 09 May 2012
