Does Everyday Minerals Make You Itch?

I was driving to work this morning when I realized I was digging at my face. It seriously itched, especially my forehead. I had been using Smoky Mountain Minerals off and on for the past 3 years, but had run out last month and started using a new container of Everyday Minerals I got in a swap on Makeup Alley. The more I itched, the more I thought about it. My skin has been itching and breaking out with these strange pimples for....the past month. Huh, coincidence?

I just don't understand what in the heck is in this stuff that is making me itch and break out like this. The ingredients are basic with no Bismuth, which I know makes me itch. It's the only product in my morning lineup that has changed.

Anyone else have the same experience with Everyday Minerals?

Ingredients: Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Zinc Oxide (CI 77947), Iron Oxides (CI 77489, CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499). May contain: Ultramarines (CI 77007).


  1. I have been using e.m. samples for a while now and they just started itching last week. My face only itches for the first hour or two after I put them on. The only thing that has changed is that I got new samples. I had never tried original glo. That's what I'm trying now and I think that is what's itching. I tried Bare Mineral samples a month ago and had no trouble at all, however when I tried my sister's b.e. a year ago it really made me itch. I'm combo/acne prone and sensitive. Any ideas?

  2. Although brown rice is considered healthier, best round grains rice is more widely consumed around the world. Rice Select's Organic White Texmati is one of the best white rice options, as it's non-GMO verified, certified gluten-free, and organic.
