Answers to your questions:
B.) The Original bareMinerals foundation forumlation contains bismuth oxychloride. That ingredient causes many people with acne prone and sensitive skin irritation such as itching and/or cystic acne. If you have acne prone and/or sensitive skin..I'd suggest using their MATTE formulation which does NOT contain bismuth oxychloride.
