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.

Gentle retinol

Nice occlusive night cream. The retinol is non-irritating but leaves the skin visibly renewed. Excellent product.

Literal game changer! Love the consistency of this very thick and luxurious cream perfect for my dry skin! I feel like it really helps to balance out my skins redness, helps fade dark spots and is a great hydrator!

A new favorite from Stratia!

12/10 would recommend. I’ve used adapalene gel to control my acne for about a year and thought I would test this out as an easy travel alternative that lets me take one product instead of a separate retinoid and night moisturizer. I WAS NOT PREPARED TO LOVE IT THIS MUCH. This straight up works just as well as adapalene gel at controlling my acne while also having one of the most enjoyable and luxurious night moisturizer textures I’ve ever tried (and I’ve tried a lot!). This product is worth the hype, worth the price, worth treating yourself with. From one female scientist to another, thank you Alli for blessing us with another brilliant formula!!

Light for my very dry skin

This is too light to use in the winter for my 52 years old very dry skin. I will try to use it in the summer.

Nice Product

Feels good to touch and not at all oily. No issues with allergic reaction or swelling around eyes which is a problem for me this time of year with the beginning of tree pollen. I like the product and will continue to use it but unfortunately can't see that it has done anything for my skin so far
