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.

Perfect Mild Retinol

Pretty dang good but

I really liked this moisturizer. It has a nice texture, spreads easy and doesn't clog my pores. However, I started getting irritated skin on my cheeks that wouldn't go away until I stopped using this. :( disappointed because it makes me glow, but I think I got sensitive to it.

I love this for my sensitive reactive combo skin. I’m new to retinol as I’ve only used one other product for about 6 months. I wanted to try this though because of all the reviews about the texture and how good it feels in your face. Retinol is the most effective thing for my pores and breakouts, but obviously hard for sensitive skin. But wow I am not disappointed! No redness or irritation, maybe just a tiny bit, but I’m sticking to every other night for a while. But I want to use it every night because of how soft and comfy my skin is , even the next morning! They should make EXACTLY this cream but without retinol and call it something like Night Off for nights when you aren’t using retinol. That would be amazing. I’m so pleased this doesn’t have a lot of other actives that irritate my skin, even HA and niacinimide do. It’s hard to find something that has a good active and so many soothing ingredients without those hyped up plant extracts and essential oils that make it useless to people with my skin type. I’m really happy with it.

Perfect starter retinol

I suffer from mild rosacea and eczema. I have finally gotten to the point where I can use something stronger on my face, but my neck skin is still very sensitive. I use this products as a nightly neck cream. It has retinol and barrier supportive ingredients that my neck needs! This is definetly not a power house retinol product, but perfect for starters or sensitive areas like around the eyes(at least for me) and neck. I also love how moisturizing it is. I do not feel the need to put another moisturizer on over top of it. Who needs an over priced neck cream when you can use this!?
