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.

Hydrating, non-greasy, scent-free formula.
This is my go-to nighttime moisturizer because every morning, my skin still manages to feel hydrated. (With other moisturizers, the hydration doesn't last all night.) If you have acne, this may be a great choice; my own acne was caused by dehydration. I recommend using slightly less product than you think you need. I initially would put a lot on my face, until I realized that it sinks in better if I'm a bit more conservative!
Wonderful Night Cream!
I tried a different retinol cream a few months ago and it severally dried out my skin. I have not had this issue with Stratia's Night Shift. It's very hydrating and I've had fewer breakouts since starting a few weeks ago. I do use the buffering technique (moisturizer before using Night Shift) to help with any potential dryness. I started using 3x/week and have moved to every other night. I plan on moving to every night next week given how well I've done thus far. Highly recommend for anyone that has had issues with retinol products in the past.
Makes my skin feel so nice!
I tried a different retinol a couple months ago and my face felt so itchy and dry after. This makes my skin feel so soft and hydrated! I have learned a lot more about skin care during this time as well. I use a hydrating toner, Stratia Rewind, and moisturizer to buffer before applying Night Shift. I may eventually try to drop the moisturizer, but didn't want my skin to freak out again. I started with every 3 nights and now I'm using it every other night without any issues. I will probably move up to every night in another week or so, but I really think it will be fine. My skin feels so nice the morning after using this!
So far, so good
This stuff goes on super creamy and really moisturizes my skin. It hasn’t caused any breakouts yet. I have only used it a few weeks, but I really like it so far.
I am new to retinol. I love this product. It’s so hydrating. A little goes a long way.
