  1. It can’t prevent hormonal acne. It’s not mentioned as one of the effects, though. However, as someone that experiences such a case, it’d be great if it could so I wouldn’t have to bother using a different product.

It’s actually good for its price so I’ll keep using it. As for the hormonal acne, I’ll figure it out. This is recommended!
