Got Dry Patches? Kanebo Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base Primer Review

A few months ago I bought the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat Base primer and Silk Cream Foundation (review later today!).

I thought the idea behind the Coffret D’or Moist F Coat was very clever and appropriate for the winter season – it’s a pearly pink type cream in a small pot which is used as a primer, but for dry spots.

On top of that, this product can be used as other things – a highlighter for example and a….ok, I’m out of suggestions.


For the record, my face has been covered in dry spots this winter – it’s been so harsh. On the top of my cheeks especially, I’ve had impossible to move flakes (well, not without being extremely rough anyway) so I had to do the best I could with it.

It meant that certain bases looked horrible, and some powders clung badly to patches of my face.

They say:

This adheres tightly to the corners of eyes, lips and other areas of dryness. This gel-type corrector keeps skin hydrated, covering up fine wrinkles and preventing makeup smudges for hours.

The packaging is lovely…#alttext#

Very princessy, and nicer than the foundation which comes in a plastic tub (this comes in a glass jar). Even though the jar isn’t massive you get plenty of product and you only need a tiny dab.

See the shade of the product? It’s like a soft pink peach with a tiny hint of pearl, tiny tiny hint.


The texture is interesting…it reminds of a thick Benefit High Beam and a bit like a face cream although I wouldn’t use this all over – it leaves too much of a highlighting effect. I did actually wonder why they’d make it in this shade – what if it draws attention to the dry patches?

Well luckily it doesn’t! It blends in and there’s a bit of a glow but it doesn’t stick to any flaky bits:


I have been using this a lot on my cheeks and I do think it’s a useful and cool product- you could hydrate more but the extra moisturiser tends to make make up slide off, this doesn’t.

See there’s a slightly pearly whitish effect?



All in all, I paid about $20 for this and it was worth it. It can use it on my dry patches and also as a highlighter and it works nicely as both – also I can’t think of anything else I have which specifically primes dry parts of my face!

    Oooh looks good…the winter’s also been harsh to my skin so I have dry patches on my cheeks, this sounds like it would do the trick! Where did you buy it from?

    Wow, sounds great! My skin’s been freaking out lately since I switched to mineral foundation – I need a stronger moisturizer, but in the meantime something like this would be great, I just didn’t know which ones worked.
