I have been using the ResMed Swift FX mask for the past 4 weeks, and am really amazed with the fit and comfort, compared to the nasal mask I have used in the past.
The mask comes with S, M, & L pillows. For smaller face fit, you can also try the Swift FX for Her, or the Swift FX Bella, which also has a different headgear alltogether.
It took me three minutes (or less) to discover I didn't like nasal pillows. Glad there are options out there.
I'm with Sleepster. I didn't want one. Was determined to not use one. We went through a LOT of masks and finally he talked me into trying the Breeze. I loved it. Every nasal mask I tried was leaking into my eyes.
I tried a "new" nasal pillow a year or so ago and same problem. They'd stop carrying the Breeze so I was using other nasal pillows but none of them I liked. Either I hated it because it it was noisy, even when in place. So after the nasal mask, I was complaining I wanted the Breeze back and they were carrying it again!
It was like finding an old friend.

I love my Swift FX pillows as well. I rotate between the regular headgear and the Bella loops.
I initially used Lansinoh on the pillows to help with irritation, but don't anymore. After a while it seemed like it made the pillows slip around too much.
