A small local business is showing the big brands how to care for people and animals with their vegan friendly, paraben free cosmetics and treatments – and anyone who books quoting the code at the bottom of this article can get 20 percent off any treatment before the end of April.

Based in Locking, Weston super Mare, Outsidethebox Natural Makeup, Organic Skincare and Treatments was launched in June 2015 by Jules Derrick.

Jules said: “Each year we go from strength to strength. We are not trying to change the world but we seek to make a positive difference to our customers with caring skin treatments using exclusive, vegan friendly, paraben free products which are only tested on humans.”

A people person, Jules knew she wanted to sell direct to customers. She did not see the value in boxing up products and sending them out to companies, preferring to be hands on, understanding, helping and relating to her customer’s skincare issues.

This strategy has paid dividends. The praise keeps flowing with respect to her products, treatments and the success she is having with both.

Jules continued: “Our unique approach is completely holistic and the carefully considered combination of our products with essential oils during our Ayurvedic based treatments means we can tailor your consultation individually.

“Our techniques really do help fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and we offer discounts for courses of treatments, as opposed to one off consultations.

From the moment we welcome you to the moment your treatment is finished there is a complete understanding of your uniqueness and which of our products will be used to get the best results for you.”

It is not just beauty factors that Jules’s expertise can help with. A trained skin camouflage practitioner, Jules’s understanding extends to skin issues such as, Rosacea, Eczema, Psoriasis, Cystic acne etc.

The company began after Jules experienced an allergic reaction to mainstream brands of makeup and skincare and decided to do something about that. Her skin reaction was so severe it affected her work and confidence.

Outsidethebox sends products all over the world. But the unique, effective combination of products and treatments is something only available to those who are able to visit Jules locally.
