Can you use a Speedskim for criling with holes for downlights?

I have a bathroom ceiling to plaster that has easily-removable downlights fitted. With the downlights removed would I be able to use a speed skim, or would it be problematic because of the downlight holes? I wonder if I would end up pushing plaster into the hole and find myself in a real mess? TIA

If you are a DIY'er why do you want to use an expensive, easily damaged speed skim? You could but a cheap metal trowel will do fine.
Any plaster in any holes can be knocked out - its not really an issue.
