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.

Like all retinol products, Night Shift is NOT recommended for those who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

Night Shift is vegan and cruelty-free. All Stratia products are free of common irritants like fragrance, alcohol, and essential oils.

Great, elegant product

I love the elegance of this formulation, very hydrating and lovely to use. I’ve seen some initial benefits to my skin, especially the forehead. Also love the airless packaging.

Double Duty

I truly enjoy using this product. The texture is that of a soothing cream. I like that I can use daily without irritation and that it also serves as a really good moisturizer. Most nights after its been absorbed, I top it off with Liquid Gold. This is the only skincare product I have even considered setting up via subscription. I don't want to ever run out.

Really good

This product was my intro into retinol and after finishing the bottle I’ve seen some major improvements in my skin. It’s smoother and glowier, and I break out way less. I will say that the texture was thicker than I personally prefer, and while I don’t think it contributed to breakouts, it felt somewhat heavy on my skin. However, I think it was a great introductory product to retinol. I didn’t get any flakiness or dryness, and it was easy to ramp it up to more frequent usage without being concerned about sensitivity.

My new holy grail night cream

I've tried over a dozen retinol products and broke out with every single one of them. I'd given up and assumed my skin was just too sensitive for retinol products. But I decided to give Night Shift a try anyway and I'm so glad I did! I've been using it for over a week now and I've not had a single breakout or negative reaction. My skin is already smoother and visibly brighter. I don't normally believe in "holy grail" products but this is my exception to the rule.
