    I think I am a “seasoned” retinol user and have used various retinols from various cosmeceutical houses. Dr Alek recommended Flash 2 for me for my fine lines and wrinkles particularly on my forehead and crow’s feet. I also have some dark spots around my nose and cheek bones from all the sun exposure as a child. Flash is not an ordinary retinol because most retinol creams take a substantial amount of time and application before results are seen. I saw dramatic results within using the product after 3 weeks. All fine lines are absent (crow’s feet) and the deeper wrinkles are much ‘softer’ looking. My skin colour seemed brighter, less ‘grey’ or matted. Flash has restored it to a younger looking, brighter and ‘more alive’ skin. The hyperpigmentation was greatly diminished, although not completely absent, which makes the skin look youthful too. Best for me about flash – it has a lasting effect, acts faster compared to other products and its restorative effect.

how to use

Evening Regime
Night-time use only.
  1. Apply to cleansed, dry skin at night before any other moisturiser or serum.
  2. Use one full pump to cover the entire face.
  3. Wait for sk.in flash to be completely absorbed before applying any other topical products, such as sk.in bounce and sk.in marvel.
  4. 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

  1. Use every third night for the first two weeks, followed by every second night for an additional two weeks.
  2. If no skin reaction occurs continue to apply sk.in flash every night.
  3. 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%).
  4. If any sensitivity is experienced, stop using the product until the skin has completely recovered, then repeat the introductory phase described above.
  5. Your skin will then begin to acclimatize to the Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate.
  6. 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.

formulation properties

level 2 - Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate (Granactive Retinol) 1.0%, Ascorbyl Tetraisopalmitate 2% (BVOSC lipid soluble Vitamin C), Vitamin E 2%, Ceramides 2%, and Hyaluronic Acid Complex 5%.

The ingredient formula combines Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Vitamins C & E, Ceramides, and Hyaluronic Acid. These ingredients have a combined affect in reducing the signs of ageing including fine lines and wrinkles, repairing the skin barrier, diminishing hyperpigmentation, protecting the skin against environmental free radical damage, and improving hydration.

sk.in flash 2 will last 2.5 to 3 months if the recommended regime is followed with a single daily use. This product spreads very easily so only 1 pump is required for the entire face. Please see product insert for further info on how to apply.

warnings & precautions

Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is an active ingredient that may sensitise the skin with overuse. Dr. Alek Nikolic recommends that you introduce this product slowly into your skin care regime. sk.in flash must not be used if pregnant, breast feeding, planning to become pregnant, or using oral Vitamin A medication (such as Roaccutane). Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate can increase skin sensitivity to the sun, so remember to always apply an SPF of 30 or higher during the day.
