Mineral make up and milia

Have to whizz out. I've had good skin for years, been using the smash box base and the loreal one with no probs.
Last two days started using baby skin and revlon mineral foundation and have developed a chain of tiny white bumps. Really irritating, what can I do? Is it likely to be the stuff with mineral

Oh, apart from the rosacea episode I posted about some time ago! Had allergy testing, followed advice and it seemed to resolve.

I get milia from creams that are too rich. That includes most night and eye creams. So it might be your base too, who knows. Try something else and see what happens?

I've been a fan of Revlon liquid foundations, but before you give up on mineral, you might try a sample of the true mineral brands that have very few ingredients. I have very problematic and sensitive/rosacea prone skin but have so far had luck with Lily Lolo and using it has improved my skin a lo. I use LRP Effaclar K underneath: no milia, no breakouts.

Thank you! I've just been to the body shop to get some vitamin e serum that everyone on here was raving about.
Might try another brand then, I liked the effect!

Is think its more likely to be the baby skin than the mineral
Maybe try the baby skin with your old foundation or a primer you've used before with the mineral makeup and see if you continue to get them.

Oh okay that's interesting. I've used other bases, jut annoying I've tried two new things at once! Schoolgirl error!

Do you think 2 days would be time to develop milia?
Perhaps the mineral makeup is simply highlighting the problem?

That's true. They are just very very tiny bumps, not noticeable in the true sense of milia iyswim? Like the beginnings?
