CJ's BUTTer Review

I love CJ's Butter! It's truly amazing and I wish I had known about it several years ago when my first son was dealing with tons of eczema issues. I'm confident CJ's would have cleared it right up!

CJ's BUTTer is safe for cloth diapers, and that was the reason my husband ordered some for me. We wanted to have a cream on hand in case Jaxon got a rash. But when it came, it smelled so delicious, it could not be confined to just the diaper area! I rub it on him after his baths and when he was little I used it on his cradle cap. It smells amazing (I said that already, didn't I?) and while it can be a little oily, it's not greasy in the same way that Aquaphor or Vaseline is.

There are only a few ingredients in CJ's BUTTer, and they are all natural. The ingredient list is shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, cocoa butter, Vitamin E, and colloidal oatmeal. 

Jaxon's little bottom gets red every time he poops. Every time, without exception. So every time he has a poop, I rub some CJ's on it. By the next diaper change, the redness is completely gone. I have also used CJ's on my lips when they were chapped and my legs when they were dry. When we're out and about, I always have some CJ's BUTTer with me, and so it has also been used to soothe scraped knees and elbows. It's very versatile and extremely useful.

We have tried the following scents Orange & Vanilla (makes your baby smell like a creamsicle!), Blueberry Crumble (like a gourmet blueberry muffin), Coconut Lime Dream (beach baby!), and Mango Sugar Mint (a softly sweet, slightly minty smell- the lightest scent of the ones I have tried). I love Coconut Lime during the summer (and often put it on my legs) because it reminds me of the beach. Orange and Vanilla seriously makes me want to gobble Jaxon up. When he wears Blueberry Crumble, everyone wants to eat him! If you're not sure what scent you will like, CJ's sells small sample jars so you can try out a few scents.

CJ's BUTTer comes in several forms: 

  • Stick (I have not tried this)
  • Jar (my favorite) 
  • Spritz (I keep this in the diaper bag because it's easiest to use when I'm out)
  • Tube
The tub is my favorite for applying after baths and such, because I can just stick a finger or two in and grab out what I need and then apply it. I thought I'd like the tube best, but CJ's is very thick and it's hard to squeeze it out (unless the tube has been in my warm diaper bag and then it is easier). 

Recently, my tube of Orange & Vanilla had become extremely hard to squeeze even though there was still a good amount left in there. So today, I warmed up some water and set the tube inside it. 

In just a couple of minutes, it was liquified (be careful - it will burn you). My sample size jar of mango sugar mint was empty, so while the oil was liquified, I poured the Orange & Vanilla into it. 

Within 5 minutes, it had cooled and "hardened" back into a cream. There's still enough in the tube to fill another small sample jar, so once I use all of this up, I'll be doing this again to get the last little bit out of the tube. I don't like to throw useful product away so I was glad I found an easy way to be able to use the rest of it! 

Have you ever used CJ's BUTTer? What is your favorite scent? 

Jaxon is 7 months and 18 days and smells like a creamsicle today. I was not compensated for this review, nor provided a product for review, though I would love to be sent some free CJ's. I just love BUTTer and wanted to share it with my readers!
