I've had good luck with the Resmed Quattro Air mask. On it they have eliminated the hard ridge across the bridge of your nose that creates so much problems. Another user this morning pointed out that Resmed has announced a new Air F10 full face mask that could be very nice. I don't know when it will be available, but probably quite soon. You can research it a bit on the Resmed site.
I do have my eye on the Air P10 mask. FREE RETURN INSURANCE makes it even better! With a mask liner, my nose might survive. I never realized the liners covered all your skin, I thought they only were used to help seal the edge where it hits your face. Duh. A little pricey, though.

readyforsleep, if you like a nasal mask or pillows, a chin strap may be a great option to help prevent mouth leaks. If you're after a full face mask and want / need one that supports the chin, there are some options out there. The Forma series (F&P?) and Hans Rudolph v2's all have chin support.
If you are sensitive to the silicone, though, your options are a little more limited. A liner may be the way to use the mask you want and keep you from reacting. Otherwise, you may need a thermoplastic mask instead. I know some of the Hans Rudolph lineup are thermoplastic (I've tried a few recently....hence why I know) and I do believe there are others, but I am far from a mask expert.
