How to use
Night-time use only.
- Apply to cleansed, dry skin at night before any other moisturiser or serum.
- Use one full pump to cover the entire face.
- Wait for sk.in flash to be completely absorbed before applying any other topical products, such as sk.in bounce and sk.in marvel.
- Remember to always apply an SPF of 30 or higher that contains Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide the following morning.
If this is your first time using sk.in flash, please follow the introductory phase skin regime instructions below.
The introductory phase skin regime
- Use every third night for the first two weeks, followed by every second night for an additional two weeks.
- If no skin reaction occurs continue to apply sk.in flash every night.
- Start with the lowest strength first flash 1 (0.6%), and slowly move up to the higher strengths of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate in flash 2 and flash 3 (1.0% and 2.0%).
- If any sensitivity is experienced, stop using the product until the skin has completely recovered, then repeat the introductory phase described above.
- Your skin will then begin to acclimatize to the Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate.
- Always use a sunblock with an SPF of 30 or higher that contains Zinc Oxide and/or Titanium Dioxide during the day when using this product.

I took a break from retinol for over a year and have now started using this product every second night. My skin has tolerated it very well and I am happy. I will definitely up the strength to Flash 3 for my next bottle!

This product was recommended to me by Dr. Alek.
Its been 3 months since I’ve started using this product and I must say there is improvement in the way my skin looks and feels. My pore size has reduced significantly and my skin feels tighter.
Also, I must say that this product lasts forever, I have been using it for approximately 3 months now, and I still have quite a bit left.

Was a bit worried about getting a reaction from the retinol serum because I have only used a mild retinol lotion gel in the past but I have had no bad reaction to this product at all. I have only been using it for two weeks. My skin is clearer and my pore size is definitely better. Great product!

I have only been using the sk.in flash 2 repair shot for 2 weeks – I wanted to introduce it slowly as I’ve never used a vitamin A serum before – and even in that short space of time, I’ve seen a remarkable difference! Looking forward to using it more.

Have been using this product for just over 2 weeks. Its a bit too early to tell if it is effective. However, i love the texture and have had no irritations thus far.

I had no irritation to my skin with this product. I can see that my skin looks smoother and more even. Can’t wait to see how my skin looks in a few months time.

Loving this! Cheated as I started on Flash 2 but my skin loves it and had no adverse reactions. Absorbs easily, doesn’t sting, doesn’t dry out.

I started with flash 1 and loved the results, but phew flash 2 is on another level. My skin is looking better than it ever has before – I got stopped the other day by someone wanting to ask if I go for lots of facials. Love this range, I can’t be without it – I use it on a few other small problem areas on my body and am very pleased with the results. Retinol irritation was very minimal with flash 1, and there has been none at all with flash 2.

I previously used flash 1 and started on flash 2 a few weeks ago. I absolutely love this product and am experiencing no sensitivity at all despite having dry sensitive skin. Skin feels good and texture is improving. Highly recommend this product.

I have sensitive skin but not affected or whatsoever. thank you Anne-Marie I am highly impressed.

I am blessed with good skin. A while ago my skin acted up and I was not happy with it. I blame it on long-term lockdown stress and a few big changes in my life. I was recommended Flash 2. I have been using it for approximately a month now and my skin is looking amazing. I am so happy and am very excited to continue using the sk.in range of products.

I was so skeptical to use this as I am in my early 30’s.
After speaking to Dr Alek and doing research on the benefits of Vitamin A I wish I had started using this sooner.
Thank you Doctor Alek once again you have not let me down.
