After 4 months of using this I finally realized it was the cause of my sinus headaches, ear aches, and nausea. It wasn't until I started have respiratory problems that I discovered that maybe my makeup was causing all of my problems. It has been about 4 weeks since I have stopped using it and I still am trying to recover from my symptoms. Things are slowly getting better, but I am nervous that I have done permanent damage. If you think that you have the same problem, google "nanoparticles and mineral makeup". I never checked if glo uses nanoparticles, but I suspect they do. They best thing I have done so far to recover is to do nasal saline rinses with a neti pot. I mix in a probiotic capsule in with the saline.
Note from gloProfessional: gloProfessional does not use nanoparticles in any of our products. We are sorry to hear you've been ill and hope you get better quickly. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

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.

I have been using Smashbox over another liquid foundation for years. I always ended up with a shiny nose..and creasing. The first time I used this product....I stared at the mirror. One quite swipe completely erased redness and unevenness, but without a made up look. I am ordering 4 because I will keep one in my purse one in my car, etc. Before getting made up was an either or proposition and most days I just blew it off. Now two seconds with this product, a bit of blush and mascara and I actually look done and fresh. Love, love, love this product!!!
