It’s not a secret that most people are required to wear face masks. Moreover, we don’t know exactly when this will end. While we are wishing and hoping for a resolution to the Pandemic, I’ve found some Beauty Brands That Can Make Life During Covid A Bit Better. They’re not really a secret at all though. You can buy them online now.
Viking Beauty Secrets for Your Face:
I have recently moved from NYC to the beautiful sunny Longboat Key Florida. Eha Urbsalu, the founder of Viking Beauty Secrets, has also moved to Florida, on the other coast in West Palm. Her products have four key ingredients to nourish your skin: sea buckthorn, rowanberries, cloudberries, and hyaluronic acid.
There are currently three products in the Viking Beauty Secrets line with an eye product in the future. No secret: all the products are certified organic, non-GMO, 100% vegan, and cruelty-free. Also no No-GMO, Chemicals, Artificial Colors, or Fragrances.
Now that we’ve told you what’s not in Viking Beauty Secrets…
The Viking Beauty Secrets Day Cream ($46) is a star!. Key Ingredients include moisturizing and plumping sea buckthorn, vitamin-packed Nordic cloudberries, and Nordic rowanberries, plus moisture-retaining hyaluronic acid.
Night Cream has the same key ingredients. But each cream has a range of other different ingredients as well.
The Exfoliating Facial Scrub is a new favorite of mine because it’s a clear gel that turns milky when it’s mixed with water. The scrub also has a nourishing Icelandic volcanic sand plus rowanberries and Nordic raspberries. It’s actually fun to use and deeply cleanses your skin. It also has a fresh and uplifting herbal scent
Everything is made in Europe (Estonia). The attractive blue and silver pump bottles (the scrub is a squeeze tube) are glass (don’t drop them!). They don’t have oxygen-free pumps but at least you don’t have to stick your fingers into a jar.
If you want to try something new to protect and hydrate your skin, Viking Beauty Secrets delivers great natural skincare–no worries! For more information visit https://vikingbeauty.com/ or amazon.
Florence by Mills For Mask Wearing Mouths:
Are you seeking lip nourishing products that won’t smoosh all over your face and mess up your mask? I’ll share a secret: Florence by Mills is the brainchild of Milly Bobby Brown who has about a gazillion Instagram followers. One look at the website (everything is Instagram-ready) and you can tell it’s targeted towards Gen Z beauty fans and the young at heart.
However, these aren’t lightweights. The products are seriously beautifying. The lip products I’m suggesting are full of moisturizing ingredients that make life more beautiful. They’re also phthalate, paraben, sulfate, and synthetic fragrance-free, cruelty-free, and good for all skin types.
If you’re foregoing the red and bold lip look right now due to masks, I have two suggestions:
Oh Whale! Lip Balm
Oh Whale! Lip Balm is a super cute cue to the little white whale on the bottom that spirals your lip balm upwards. But inside there’s a seriously silky and hydrating lip balm. It has a cocktail of moisturizing oils like argan and avocado and also shea butter.
This is one of the most pampering lip balms ever. A whale of a good lip balm (sorry I couldn’t resist the pun). It looks orange in the tube, but actually, it’s clear. Florencebymills.com, $12.00
Tinted Glow Yeah Lip Oil:
Oils are trendy. The Florence by Mills Tinted Glow Yeah Lip Oil offers a hint of color and lots of hydrating and isn’t sticky at all! But, more than that, it will adjust a bit to your own skin’s pH and make the color yours, Here is the nice pink color on me!
Moreover, it has great for your lips African Mango Butter and Paracress Flower to make lips soft.
Want to know my secret? Blot, and you’ll be wearing a bit of tint will remain, but your mask won’t be a mess!

Keep Body Odor a Secret: Clean Beauty Deodorant:
Sugar Mint Prebiotic:
We like our breath to be minty fresh, so why not our underarms? The secret is to use something natural and unobtrusive that works.
Phresh Naturals prebiotic deodorant in Sugar Mint peps up your senses while it protects your “pits” from odors (in a natural way).
This deodorant has a combination of prebiotics, organic ingredients and minerals to help you stay fresh for up to 24 hours. The hypoallergenic, stick deodorant has no aluminum, parabens, phthalates, glycol, gluten, GMOs, artificial color, synthetic fragrance, and baking soda. These are ingredients that can irritate your skin, especially if it’s sensitive.
I grow wild mint, and this deodorant smells just like a field of wild mint! For those who need it, it’s also vegan. For those who prefer a liquid, there is Pre/Pro Biotic Deodorant Spray in light and exotic Frangipani & Monoi. The only downer is that the bottle is glass and not the best thing to leave out where little hands or pets and knock it over.
For Women Only:
There is also a unique Phresh product for women, a Feminine Foaming Serum. Dispensed from a pump bottle, it helps to promote the best possible environment for healthy bacteria to flourish, which protects against odor and irritation “down there.”
The slightly foaming formula is packed with pre+probiotics as well as lactic acid to maintain the perfect pH level and to combat odor before it starts. We tried the refreshing Sage & Chamomile. However, you can also choose bergamot rose and fragrance-free varieties.
