Before I used this I only had very mild hormonal acne. I thought this would make my skin perfect.... I was wrong. My skin was amazing the first week but then after that my hormonal acne increased and I had my first ever breakout with 4 huge pimples near my mouth. This also caused me to have cystic pimples, which I'd never had before. I had 4 cystic pimples while using this and since I stopped, I haven't had any. I used it for 3 months and that purging phase never stopped. My advice: if you have the money then try it, but if it makes you breakout, STOP, because it won't ever get better.
