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.
- Night Shift
The first time I used night shift I had a reaction to the retinoid - a month earlier I had severe wind burn and those places were the places that reacted so I chalked it up to my skin being hyper sensitive. I waited a few weeks before using it again to allow my skin to calm. I started using a small amount mixed with some liquid gold to dilute it, once a week, and slowly built up to every second night without too much irritation. I recently tried to use a slightly larger amount without the liquid gold and I again experienced some dryness and flaking but didn’t experience stinging like I had previously. Ive since returned to my regiment of diluting it and intend to continue to build up my tolerance. It’s too early to know if I’m seeing any results in my complexion and skin texture.
Night Shift was recommended to me by a social media skin enthusiast/influencer after a bad experience with another retinol product. Night Shift is incredible, two weeks in my skin showed great improvements. It never irritated my skin….JUST TRY IT….HOLY GRAIL!
The texture is soft but thick, it feels great on the skin and leaves my skin feeling plump. Has really helped overall texture and fine lines. Will repurchase and would recommend!
The founder of Stratia needs to pay herself on the back for how amazing these products are! This night cream started me on my Retinol Journey and I’m forever grateful! I started out using this night cream on top of a lighter moisturizer, then as my main moisturizer, then as my only step at night so I could reap all the benefits of putting it on damp, clean skin. Now I have worked myself up to a 1% retinol and use this cream as a top up, I use it on my neck and Décolleté, where my skin is more sensitive and can’t handle 1% pure retinol. And even if you don’t care about the retinol, this is still an absolutely AMAZING moisturizer! It’s creamy without being super thick. It’s moisturizing without being greasy. It’s protective without feeling smothering. It’s amazing! Can’t say enough good things and will continue to buy it. On bottle number 4
Excellent night cream. My skin feels great when i wake up in the next morning. Felt clearer (and soft, though not my main target as i am a guy). I use it on the nights when i dont use retinol serum. Will repurchase definitely!
