First 2 weeks. Mask recommendations?

First 2 weeks. Mask recommendations?
I've done the last two weeks with my ResMed Airsense10 Autoset and Phillips Dreamwear mask.  I like the minimum mask, but Sleepyhead is telling me I have too much leakage.  Pressure was set to 5-20 during initial setup.
I wear a beard, and am a face-in-the-pillow side sleeper, with my left cheek against a pillow corner.  I think this is not only closing off one side of the Dreamwear, but inevitably pushing the nose seal away as I move.  I note my best nights are when I do the most amount of physical activity during the day, and just fall to bed exhausted.  I probably do not move very much.

What mask would you recommend I try at this point?

I'm a side sleeper and the ResMed P10 works for me. Also a lot of people like the F&P Brevida.

For leaks try a soft cervical collar. It will help keep your jaw closed and cut down on mouth leaks.

I"m a side sleeper and I've used both the p10 and the Brevida--the P10 would dislodge when I moved, the Brevida doesn't so I've stuck with that.  Otherwise both where comfortable for me.
