Product Review (submitted on August 20, 2012):
I bought my first Glominerals Pressed Base at the Ann Webb Skin Clinic. The color matched me well and I was able to control the coverage. I didn't have a problem with breakouts.
I really liked the product so I bought another compact online. Since using the new compact, I've had tons of breakouts, from tiny pimples to large pimples. And they are all over my face. I'm really disappointed because the first base worked so well. Did the formulation change? I know the packaging changed. Previously the compact was a rounded compact with a silver top, encircled with a black ring. The newer compact I got (from DermStore) has a shiny black finish on the compact top and less rounded edges.
Also, the sponge/applicator is different.
Insights are appreciated!
Note from gloProfessional: Thank you for sharing your experience, Karen. We're sorry to hear your skin is reacting. There have been no changes to our Pressed Powder formulation, only the compact has been updated. We would suggest that you stop using all skin care and cosmetics and slowly introduce one by one to isolate the irritant. Furthermore changes in diet, climate, consumption, stress and exposure to various environmental elements could also be causes of this negative reaction in your skin.
