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.
- Night Shift
Love this stuff! I recently replaced my retinol for night shift and have no regrets. My skin feels amazing.
I liked this product a lot; it felt great on my skin, went on smooth, fragrance was mildly just sort of sweet, but nearly nonexistent/obviously not added (my perfect cosmetic). I wanted to love it, but unfortunately it broke me out, and I'm also not sure it's worth the price for what kind of retinol and how much you get (I mostly wanted it as a nourishing night cream, and not an active, so this wasn't a holdup for me, but could be for some people). Anyway; YMMV, and overall it's a great product, it just didn't work for me.
I was surprised at how well this stayed on during the night. Hydration without the weight. Suitable for dry climates.
I use this on lazy nights because I’m a ******** user, so when I’m half asleep and can barely get it together to wash my face, I slap this on after and call it a night. I wake up with super happy skin. BUT more importantly, it’s so effective and hydrating that I’ve actually been able to get my partner to use it consistently (he’s not one for a routine...). It’s a great one stop shop for someone who wants a simple routine but needs a retinoid in play. This at night, SPF in the morning, and you’d be doing pretty Aok!
I really enjoy this moisturizer, I feel like I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate it.
