The Ins and Outs of CJ’s Butter

By: Jessica Dunn

When I started to think about using cloth diapers, I was overwhelmed. Once I got my head wrapped around the different types of cloth diapers and all the brands, I was then hit by two bombs, CD (cloth diaper) safe detergent and diaper rash cream. “Are you kidding me? I can’t just use the stuff I can buy at Target?” Those were the exact questions I screamed at my computer as I was trapped in bed on bed rest. At least I had plenty of time on my hands to research.

I decided to try to CJ’s Butter because I read great things about it and there were so many different scents to try and different types of products I could use. I have serious smell aversion, so I didn’t want to get stuck with something that smelled disgusting or made me want to gag.

I’m so glad that I decided to try CJ’s because it has become one of my favorite products and I give it as gifts all the time. Here’s a brief (well, somewhat brief) comparison of three of their products. These are the three that I use on my daughter regularly for diaper cream and rash treatment.

CJ’s BUTTer sticks come in two sizes, small (.75 ounces) and large (2 ounces). I keep these in the diaper bag because they’re easiest to travel with and don’t take up much space. They remind me of glue sticks in the way they are used. Pull off the cap and twist the bottom to get to the product. You can apply it directly to the bum, but I’m not a huge fan of that. I don’t think it’s super sanitary, so I apply it to my hands and then rub it on her bum. (Clean hands of course). It doesn’t take much I rub the stick on my index and middle fingers from the tip to the first knuckle. That has always been plenty.

My favorite uses: diaper bag, traveling

Spritz (4 ounces) is rapidly becoming one of my favorite products because it’s so easy to use and it’s super sanitary. Pop off the cap, spray, rub and you’re done. It’s also a great on the go wipe solution. I can spray a dry wipe or a slightly damp wipe and clean and condition all at once. I have even used it as a leave-in conditioner for my curly hair; spritz it on my wet hair, scrunch and go. When we have houseguests, I even spray the sheets lightly in our guestroom. (CJ’s does make a linen spray, but I haven’t tried it yet).

My favorite uses: on the go wipe solution, traveling, body spray, linen spray

Pot (8 ounces) and Tub o’Butter (12 ounces)
This is my favorite product for on the diaper change table. It will last forever. I grab a small amount on my finger tip or use a q-tip to grab a little and then rub it onto my fingers before I apply it to Emma’s bum. My husband works in a warehouse and has horribly dry hands, so he applies some before he goes to bed at night. I really like it for my feet. I put it on and the put socks on so I can wake up to soft feet in the morning. I think my personal favorite use is melting it under the hot water and then using it in the bath tub. It smells great and my skin feels amazing afterwards.

My favorite uses: diaper change table, nightstand for dry hands/feet, bath tub

The scent variety is amazing. There are so many different options that there’s no way that I can describe each one, but I can tell you that I haven’t tried one that I don’t like and that definitely means something coming from me. I do have some favorites, so I’ll share those with you: monkey farts, blueberry crumble, apples and spice (fall limited scent, so grab it while you can), my pixie pie, pink sugar, and warm vanilla cake. I definitely encourage you to order some samples and try as many scents as you can.

CJ’s can be used for so much more than diaper cream. It can be by children and adults for eczema, rashes, dry/chapped skin, dry hands/feet and cuticles, hangnails, leave-in hair conditioner, melt a dollop under running bath water, and wind burned cheeks/face.
