Same here. I have been using protein powders on and off since I was 21. I am 38 now and never had an acne out break. It's possible that someone could be allergic to ingredients in powders. I love my GNC Soy vanilla protein. I think it is $36 for a container of 55 servings. I ran out and have not replaced it yet so don't quote me on servings. I also have a GNC gold card so I save 20% on everything. It has
