Will Taking Weight Gainer Cause One To Breakout?

It will break you out because of the 81g of sugar per serving. And the first listed "other ingredient" is maltodextrin, which is a starch that causes blood sugar spikes just as much as sugar, but it's not listed as a sugar in the nutrition facts. And the nutrition facts in that link conveniently left out the amount of total carbohydrates. So the 81g of sugar plus the unknown amount of maltodextrin will destroy your insulin sensitivity.

Plus it has allergens, like you said.

I have been trying to gain weight as well, and I've been eating a lot of peanut butter and nuts, and I'm thinking about using a pea protein shake, as it is free of allergens and sweeteners. The one I would get actually only has one ingredient: pea protein isolate.
