An honest review of the March Birchbox

I have been receiving a Birchbox subscription for nearly a year now. It is the UK’s number one beauty box subscription which is tailored to the subscriber’s skin, hair and style.  Five beauty products are sent every month allowing you to discover new products.  It always has at least one full-size product.  I have seen many reviews of the Birchbox and they are always saying very fluffy things, singing the products praises and which I do not feel are very real.  Some of the products are amazing and some are not.  So, here’s my honest review of what I received this month…

You will never be everyone’s cup of tea – good because I’m over it!

Let’s be honest, you usually see a picture of me sipping on a glass of Prosecco rather than a cup of tea! The well-used British idiom means ‘not to someone’s liking’, and as I’ve got older, grumpier and less tolerant toward people and things that impact on my routine or life has seen me change my outlook.

You are not everyone’s cup of tea, but that’s OK

Growing up, I wanted people to like me and if there was a hint that they did not then I didn’t like it. I would do stupid things to try to make them like me – be loud, tell a few white lies, agree with their views (even if I didn’t). I would try out their hobbies so I would not be left out.  Behaved differently around people trying to be a person I thought they wanted me to be.
