CJ's BUTTer® Review {Delighting in Babies-Baby Shower Event}

A few months ago my sister started cloth diapering my nephew and I got to admit it intrigued me. The diapers were so cute and not at all what I expected. So I started following a cloth diaper forum and I got hooked. I loved reading about all of the different types of diapers and looking at the pictures. The one thing that stood out to me was that you can not use just any type of laundry detergent or diaper cream. I kept reading about using CJ's BUTTer® for diaper cream and then my sister recommended them as well. She said not only was it great for diaper cream but eczema too. So I wrote the company and was thrilled to be given the chance to review a few of their products. Here is a little about the company:

CJ S. Miller started CJ's BUTTer® in her kitchen out of determination to make a cloth diaper friendly diaper cream for her own children. The Original BUTTer® formula she created proved not only to be the best all natural diaper cream available, but there have literally been more than 20 uses found for this amazing product. Since the humble beginnings of CJ's BUTTer® CJ had added over a dozen additional products to our product line many of which are also multi-taskers. All of our products are handcrafted using only carefully selected ingredients, and most are available in over 3 dozen scent options.

My thoughts: I got to admit I could not wait for my shipment to arrive and it shipped quickly. They sent me two of the Original CJ's BUTTer® samples, a 2 oz lotion, and a Bug Banisher. The first item I tried out was the Original CJ's BUTTer® samples. The sample sizes are a half an ounce and a little goes a long way. I received two scents: Warm Vanilla Cake and Monkey Farts. Let me tell you the Warm Vanilla Cake scent is just awesome-I love it.  The Monkey Farts scent, despite its name, smells quite nice. Here is how they describe the scent on their website: A truly unique fragrance that begins with top notes of fresh banana and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note. Although the original purpose of CJ's BUTTer® was to be an all natural cream safe for cloth diapers, it has so many uses. Here are some of its other uses:
  • Eczema
  • Very dry/chapped skin
  • Bug bites
  • Sunburn pain and peeling
  • Itchy pregnant tummies (I wish I had my samples sooner as I developed PUPPS a few days postpartum)
  • Cradle cap
  • Stretch marks
I was just amazed when I learned about all of the ways CJ's BUTTer® can be used and can't wait to try some of them. While my little one has not had a diaper rash for me to try it on, I have used it so far for my older son's eczema and my little one's cradle cap, and it worked great for both! CJ's BUTTer® comes in half ounce samples, a 4 oz tube, a 8 oz pot, and a 12 oz tub. They also sell CJ's BUTTer® PLUS which not only has the benefits of the Original, but it has ingredients that treat fungal skin problem such as yeast rashes and thrush.

Next I tried out a 2 ounce size of CJ's Creamy Body Lotion. This lotion contains no alcohol or chemical moisturizers. The scent of my sample was Pink Sugar which is also amazing! I have used it on the dry skin of my heels and I have noticed a difference. I just can't wait to use it in the winter time when my hands get extremely chapped. Last, I tried their Bug Banisher. I had been looking for an all-natural bug repellent so I was excited to try this out. In the summer time, when my boys are outside more at night, they always seem to get bit by mosquitoes and their bug bites really swell up. This product uses a combination of essential oils and other ingredients that bugs hate. Just last Friday I tested this product on my boys. I loved the idea that it was all natural and it didn't smell bad like other repellents I have used. I did notice that the mosquitoes were out, but this product worked and they did not get bit.

Besides the samples I received, they also sell lip balm, a body and linen spray, wool wash and woolie revitalizer, and an all purpose cleaner, just to name a few. I love my samples! Not only do they work great, but they smell awesome as well. As I begin my adventure in cloth diapers, I am well prepared for any diaper rashes they may occur with my Original BUTTer® samples-I can't wait to try out more scents! And even if I do not need them for rashes, there are plenty of other ways I can and will use them.

Disclosure: I received samples from CJ's Unique Boutique to review. No other compensation was received. All opinions are my own and are my honest opinion of the products.
