CJ's BUTTer Review (and Giveaway)




I had the AWESOME opportunity to review a few products from CJ's Unique Boutique. I am always seeing reviews and giveaways for CJ's BUTTer and have been dying to try it! When I got in touch with them, they agreed to send me some samples to check out and one to giveaway soon:-)! Can I just say that I was SUPER EXCITED! 

First off, I LOVE the name CJ's BUTTer...so cute and creative! Hopefully the name gives you a clue that this product was originally created as a Cloth Diaper Safe Rash Balm! It is important when using Cloth Diapers that you use a Cloth Diaper Safe Balm to help preserve the effectiveness of your diapers. You also want something that will be nourishing to your babies bum and be filled with lots of all-natural ingredients. Get a look at the ingredients:

CJ’s Original BUTTer ingredients: shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, cocoa butter, vitamin E, colloidal oatmeal, fragrance


CJ’s BUTTer PLUS ingredients: shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, sesame oil, vitamin e, neem oil

Our Experience with Diaper Rash
My son has very sensitive skin. That being said, it has been quite difficult to keep him dry and keep Diaper Rash at bay. I literally have to change him ever 1-2 hours and he is 7 months old! It seemed as if the Diaper Rash would never leave!!! When I received my CJ's BUTTer sampler in the mail, I started using a tiny amount of the PLUS formula when he started to look red or pink. By the next time I changed him, the redness was gone! I was amazed! How could something so "all-natural" work so well? I think it is the mixture of ingredients above. Nature's solution to nature's problem! The best part is that one application of the BUTTer lasted for a few diaper changes. The oils in the BUTTer allow it to adhere to the skin very well! I was so impressed!

In addition to using this on my baby's bum, I also used this on my hands! If you are like me, and you have a new baby at home (or any baby, or  better yet, anyone who doesn't want to get sick), you will be washing your hands constantly. Washing your hands all the time paired with the cold New England air often produces dry, chapped and flaky skin...eugh! I put some of the BUTTer on my hands, and then put on my moisturizing gloves over top of the balm for the night...when I got up in the morning, my hands felt so soft, and the flakes were gone!!

In A Nutshell:

My Thought's: I love this product as a Diaper Rash Balm. It is so soft and gentle on my little guy's bum. I also love the different scents that it comes in! In addition to being a great diaper balm, it works great on dry skin and even your hair (I used it on my eye brows too)!

The Hubby's Thoughts: (Let me warn you that the hubby has very, very dry skin and is VERY PICKY about lotions and moisturizers...he claims to know within 15 minutes if a moisturizer is good or not). That being said, the hubby tried the lotion sample and LOVED it!! In fact, when I went to try the lotion sample for myself, I found it right next to his iPhone!! That is a pretty special place to be because he takes his iPhone EVERYWHERE!

The Baby's Thoughts: This feels so good on my bum!! Ahhhhhh...blueberry crumble is my favorite! That's him in the picture trying to eat the blueberry crumble sample! Good thing its all-natural!

The Dog's Thoughts: When I first opened the package, her nose was all over it! She too loved the blueberry crumble...I had to stop her from trying to lick the BUTTer!

Do you want to try your own sample of CJ's BUTTer? Head on over to CJ's Unique Boutique. You can find a full 4 oz squeeze tube in the scent of your choice for only $9.00! Trust me, this will last forever!


Not sure which scent you like the best? Order a sampler package and try them all out! There are also Vegan formulas as well!

As I mentioned before, CJ's is also sponsoring a giveaway as part of my Huge Cloth Diaper Mother's Day Event starting May 1st. You can win your own full size tube of CJ's BUTTer in Blueberry Crumble!

  15. I've heard such great things about these products but have yet to try them. I currently have some products, which are 'okay', but I'm trying to use them up before investing in something new. Thanks for the extra push :)

  17. I have been looking for something to use on my ds. He has sensitive skin and I also have to change him just about every hour. I think I will give this stuff a try!

  18. I just bought a two tubes and I love the scents, but I think next time I'm going to try the vegan formula. That way I can use it on my super dry curly hair. I didn't like the way the lanolin feels in my hair, but I bet the vegan formula will work wonders. I also constantly wash my hands and I put this on every night. Oh yeah, it also works great on baby's bottom. ;-)
