I got some of these exactly the same and I was expecting big things, unfortunately they didn't seem to have much effect. I used them right at the begining of my cycle so maybe I didn't have everything right like training at maximum effort for example or some other reason. I was a bit disappointed though. Possibly I was expecting too much but I didn't notice much bloat or acne or anything. I was hoping for a few sides cos then I'd know they were working. I assumed that what I got was fake.
