Experience

Works well if you have a regular routine/good memory. Made me very spotty for first few weeks, but overall my skin is my better now I’ve been using it regularly. However my mood is a nightmare, make me extremely hormonal especially when starting it again. Also took 2 packets back to back as they said it would stop my period for that week, but instead I had a continuous period for 29 days.
