Forest Essentials Ayurvedic Sheet Masks

Hello there! I am back with some more sheet masks today for you. 
I am a bit of a sheet mask fan...while I am writing this post, I have about 15 more sitting in my stash. And while I have tried many - Innisfree, Face Shop, Dear Packer and have found a couple I like, when Forest Essentials launced their sheet masks, I couldn't stop myself from getting them!

Why? Well firstly, I like most of their products. And secondly the "ayurvedic" tag. Now, before I start talking about them, you should know that these are way more pricey than the other regular sheet masks out there. I was certainly not expecting them to be priced so much and was very disappointed with it. I wanted to try out all 3 varaints, but keeping the price in mind I settled down with 2 to try first - Tejasvi and Sundari

There are 3 variantsTejasvi Brightening and Lightening Sheet Mask, Ojas Age Arresting Sheet Mask & Sundari Deep Hydration Sheet Mask. 

The packaging is on point! Just look at the illustration! So beautiful! I did not try it for 2 weeks after buying just because I couldn't rip the pretty cover. 
Of course, it isn't the pretty cover that really matters now does it? 

The second thing that disappointed me (apart from the price) was the lack of a full ingredients list. Just mentioning the Key ingredients is not enough, somehow though FE never mentions the full ingredients... it is a shame really!

The sheet mask itself feels super soft and definitely more luxurious as compared to other other brands I have tried. They also sit really well on the face. There is ample quantity of serum in there. I got enough to even apply on my arms and neck.

Tejasvi - The serum is milky white, creamy but light in texture. I left the mask on for 20 minutes and massaged the remaining serum in. It took about 5 minutes (defintely a bit longer than usual) to make the serum completely sink into the skin. 

Immediate effect - Hydrated plump skin. No immediate visible brightening effect on me. I did however notice a mild glow on my skin the next day, but nothing spectacular

Sundari - This one has a transparent serum. Again the mask is drenched in a more than generous amount of the serum. It feels cooling and luxurious on the skin as well. 
It hydrates really well and makes the skin soft and very plump. I really liked this varaint a lot. 
The gel takes a few minutes to sink in, I massaged for about 5 minutes. But it doesn't feel too sticky afterwards (Bangalore has a colder dry weather so keep that in mind, it could feel a bit greasy in humid areas).

Price : 395 INR for 1 ; 995 INR for a pack of 3 

Overall, I liked both the masks. Definitely preferred Sundari a lot more as I couldn't see a lot of brightening from Tejasvi.
Basically, I find most sheet masks to do the same thing - at least immediate effect - soften, hydrate and plump up the skin. Which Sundari does a better job of, since that's what it is meant to do. 

The only downside of these masks is the price. I understand why these are priced more than the regular sheet masks, and I would have been okay to  pay a bit more too, but these are more than double the price, which I really can't justify. 
I might keep a few Sundari one's in my stash (if I am in the mood to splurge a little), for days when I want to pamper myself or for a special occasion, but these masks are certainly not a must buy. 
Feel free to try then out if you want to though!
