EDIT 6/5/13: If the moderator could please PM me I would like some clarification. Thank you!
its just because you are new. After your status changes, you'll be able to post links.
I use Everyday Minerals out of Austin. They were pretty small when I started using them, but they've grown. Many people here on this board used them. There were many lengthy threads and much love. Until they got larger and provided a less friendly service. Plus they seriously complicated up their colors making it even harder to figure out your match. And some claimed there was a change in formula and it irritated them. Never bothered me any and I haven't felt the need to seek out something else. Besides, I'm in Texas so this is about as buying local as I can get unless a mineral makeup maker has sprouted in Houston.

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
