Just wondering if anyone’s slept with this on? I’ve double coated it and it’s been on three hours and it’s still quite light; debating washing off before bed vs in the morning

If it is the first time using this product I would follow the instructions.  For me it is like a recipe, for the first time I follow the directions, then adapt it to my liking.

I use mousse tanner all the time so I can judge the result pretty well; usually use bondi sands though (my HG tan <3) but this is a lot more subtle

i slept with it on. i was wary of doing so cos i didn't want to look like an oversaturated oompa loompa but i just came out looking normal and not overly tanned at all. maybe once it's washed off like they say it will 'work' over the next 8 hours or whatever. i dunno. i didn't like it that much. did it work for you?

I've used this and Bondi sands and I agree with you and prefer Bondi. When I used st tropez I washed it off as per instructions and afterwards my skin looked like normal and not even the slightest bit tanned. It does develop more over time and mine became a light tan (I think I left mine on for just over 2 hours) and I applied a gradual tanner (oasis) on top for extra oomph. I'd say this product works best if you leave it to develop over time, so your suggestion of leaving it in overnight might work.

Hmm, sounds like it needs quite a bit of effort to make it work!
