An age-defying night cream featuring encapsulated retinol.
Wake up to the skin of your dreams. Retinol increases cell turnover and stimulates collagen production for clearer, bouncier, more youthful skin. The 0.15% retinol in Night Shift is encapsulated in a lipid sphere, which helps it reach the deepest layers of your skin. We added in powerful skin-soothers like ceramides, panthenol, and centella asiatica to keep your skin calm and happy.

How it works
Your skin is made up of three layers: the thin, protective epidermis; the dermis providing structural integrity and nutrients to the epidermis; and the hypodermis, connecting the skin to the fat and muscle below.
The middle layer, the dermis, is most responsible for the visible signs of aging. It contains structural proteins like collagen and elastin, which keep skin bouncy, firm, and wrinkle-free. As we age and spend time in the sun, these proteins break down, which leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.
Retinol penetrates deep in your skin to unwind the visible effects of aging by stimulating new collagen production in the dermis. It also protects your collagen from degrading, and helps remove broken elastin fibers. Retinol also increases cell turnover in the outer layers of your skin, helping to fade dark spots and improve skin texture.
For all its excellent qualities, retinol can be fairly irritating, so we’ve included some powerful skin-soothers to counteract that side effect. Ceramides, panthenol (pro-vitamin B5), and centella asiatica (cica) all work to moisturize, calm, and protect your skin. Squalane and marula oils provide deep hydration and antioxidant benefits.
Is it right for me
Night Shift is formulated for all skin types. It’s deeply moisturizing but non-greasy, so it can be used on both very dry and very oily skin. While we formulate all products with sensitive skin in mind, retinol can cause irritation, so we recommend introducing Night Shift to your routine gradually and give your skin a chance to adjust.
Night Shift is vegan and cruelty-free. All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.
First, I was happily surprised how large the bottle was when it arrived - definitely a good amount of product for the price. The texture is of a night cream, but not so heavy that it makes me nervous to use on acne-prone skin. Also, to me, this product has the LEAST scent of anything I've used! I imagine it's really good for people who are sensitive to smells or fragrances. I've not used it long enough to speak to levels of irritation from retinol, but I did not get a reaction after the first night of using with the Soft Touch AHA applied first (and I've reacted poorly to all retinol products I've tried in the past). Thank you for making this Stratia!
The texture of this cream is a dream. Wraps my skin in a truly effective and essentials-only formula. Love that there is no scent. Makes me excited to do my night time skincare routine, and my skin wakes up well treated without even a hint of irritation. Well done Stratia!
Of the encapsulated retinol I've tried, this texture is like heaven. I absolutely adore it. My skin has been experiencing irritation recently, so now I use this slightly lower potency retinol cream every other night and it melts in to the skin beautifully, while the cica helps calm my poor skin. Really wonderful product!
Since this is a brand new product, I’ve only been using for a week but so far it is AMAZING!! I probably can’t comment on the retinol aspect yet since that takes time to see results, however, this product used as a nighttime moisturizer is a dream! My face feels so moisturized and I wake up with the softest skin! Will absolutely be buying again.
When I first used Night Shift, I was incredibly surprised with the overall texture and moisturizing properties it’s provided. I personally think it feels more hydrating than LG! Throughout the weeks saw how effective the formula was as my skin’s texture improved and skin brightened! Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen in the mornings! This retinol was pretty strong and even a little time in sun made my skin feel a bit hot.
