No it doesn't. I've tried my friend's mineral makeup before on my acne prone skin and there weren't any negative effects. I actually like mineral makeup because it has a different finish - kind of more refined. I think Arbonne makeup (body-philosophy.net/arbonne) has a line of mineral makeup which I heard were really fab. I plan to try it sometime. Soon, hopefully.is mineral makeup better for acne prone skin? Does it not clog the pores like regular makeup?
