CJ's BUTTer is safe to use with cloth nappies and has a huge range of applications including treating nappy rash, eczema, clearing up rashes, repairing dry, cracked or sunburned skin, protecting dry or cracked nipples (and is safe for breastfeeding), conditioning curls and to generally promote healing.
We loved CJ's BUTTer! It came into our life in a timely fashion, as I had just given birth to my son, and he had had bad nappy rash that we couldn't get under control.
Not only did it smell delicious, but being made from all natural ingredients (reading the ingredient list - I recognised everything!) I was happy to put it on his little sensitive bottom. While we still needed a stronger cream to get rid of the initial rash, I put CJ's BUTTer on in between use of the stronger cream, and it kept his bottom fresh and, unlike some other barriers we tried, seemed to keep the rash at bay. Now I use it as a preventative cream because we use cloth nappies and it's fantastic having something that won't ruin the nappies, but works!
I've also used the BUTTer on my nipples as I'm breastfeeding a very hungry baby who definitely gives them a work out. I've had no cracks or bruises on them which is a definite blessing.
I've also used it on dry skin (his and mine) and it works quickly to soften it up.
I would definitely use it again (and am keen to try out the different flavours) and am going to buy the spray version to keep in my nappy bag!
I will admit that before getting the chance to review this product, I thought I had already struck 'nappy rash cream gold', but I was wrong!
I was fortunate enough to receive the 'Madagascar' CJ's Butter and as the title says, 'it had me at a whiff'! Upon opening the lid I was immediately taken by the divine scent of this butter. The 'Madagascar' scent is so divine without being sickeningly overwhelming, instead is just heavenly to smell.
I was very intrigued to try this product, as the 'multi use' element certainly piqued my interest. At the time of review, my little one had teething nappy rash and was a little reluctant at nappy change, however due to the divine butter-like consistency and ease of use, there were no longer any issues. The butter applies like a dream, as once it has contact with the warmth of the skin, it melts/absorbs and spreads so easily onto the area it's applied.
There are no issues with lumps and clumps and a little goes a long way with this product, so no need for excessive amounts. After a day of using the butter, the redness had disappeared and my little one's rash was gone, I was amazed! It seems all the wonderful natural ingredients such as shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa seed butter, oatmeal and essential oils to name a few had worked their magic.
Not wanting to stop there, I tried it on my toddler's unruly curls, my dry hands and legs and even on a person with excessive burn scars and again, this butter never failed to impress. It nourishes without being too greasy/oily and it is gentle enough to use on babies through to adults with sensitive skin. It's multi-use is a big bonus as is the fact that a little goes a long way and I doubt anyone could go past the divine scent!
I would thoroughly recommend CJ's Butter in Madagascar :-)
I was really excited to be receiving this product. My 3 year old son has eczema on his upper arms, and we have been looking for the perfect product for him.
Other than the smell (he didn't like the yummy sweet orange smell), the product didn't cause him any problems, and with a few days we started to see an improvement.
My 1 year old daughter at the time had nappy rash, and noticing on the leaflet provided thst it also helped nappy rash, it put it on her. The next day the rash was gone!
I would recommend this product to anyone, and it would be a great gift for any new mum that is looking for natural products for their little one, that also smells fantastic.
This is a very rich moisturiser, it smells amazing and is very oily in texture. Within a couple of days of receiving this the whole family was slathering it on. My DS (3 years old) suffers terrible atopic eczema and we have had a hard time finding a cream that does not contain mineral oil and which he actually tolerates us applying without tears. He loved his "special cream" and it did a fabulous job of keeping his skin moisturised.
DD is 12 months and suffers occasional nappy rash. I was certainly much happier applying this to her delicate bits than commercial zinc based creams. I also would apply it all over after a bath. I used this cream myself after a shower and haven't yet tried it as a curl conditioner but I'm sure it does a great job.
This product definitely exceeded my expectations - and I have tried every moisturiser under the sun while trying to fix my son's eczema. Very impressed.
CJ's Butter is amazing. It really helped to soften skin and take away any itching that there was. I also got sunburned and used it on that. It soothed the sunburn and helped to prevent peeling even.
It was so easy to use and smelled so amazing. I would recommend this to anyone.
We started using this for DD as a barrier cream as she tends to get rashy especially in warm weather. We use MCNs and liners and one big plus was that when this got on to the MCNs it came out easily with normal washing, unlike other nappy creams. It smells AMAZING!! I used a melon and cucumber scent and it is lovely. It kept her rash free, so when heat rash appeared on her chest and neck, I applied some of the CJ's BUTTer and found the rash cleared fast and seemed to take the itch out. Highly recommended!
I couldn't wait to receive CJ's Butter as part of Bubhub's Reviewer Panel as I'd heard so many good things about it.
It didn't disappoint!
We were sent 'Lemon Grove' which smells deliciously like a Lemon pudding and good enough to eat!
The Butter is so smooth and spreads really well, meaning you only need a small amount to cover a big area, we've only made a small dent in the 8oz pot and have used it several times a day since it arrived.
We used the butter on my two year old who has eczema on his chest, back and face.
Like most mums I am mindful of what I put on his skin and was desperate to find a more natural alternative that would give him some relief.
Thankfully the soothing texture of the cream was an instant relief for the itching and we could visibly see the difference CJ's Butter made within two days, after a week there was still a small amount of redness but the dry flaky skin was pretty much gone.
We have been using it now for four weeks, the eczema still flares up after swimming and very hot days but CJ's Butter soothes it straight away and clears most of it within a few days, most importantly though it keeps on top of the itching and scratching.
He is a much happier boy and calls it his "Nice back cream".
The only minor complaint would be that if I put a t-shirt on him after applying the Butter it leaves a sort of greasy mark on the clothing, that is easily solved though by waiting until it dries before dressing.
I also have to add that as a bonus my hands are silky soft as well!
We will most definitely be buying it when the Lemon Grove pot runs out and can't wait to check out some of the other scents, especially 'Monkey Farts'!
I have been using this for the last few weeks on my 5 month old and two year old. Firstly, the smell is amazing, delicious and fresh! My two year old gets really bad nappy rash and this butter made his bum less red by his next nappy change. The rash was almost non-existent overnight! We use it on my 5 month old as a barrier cream and since we have been using it he hasn't even had a spot of nappy rash. I also used the tiniest bit on my chapped lips and by morning they were good as a new! All in all I highly recommend this product, it has so many uses and actually works.
CJ's BUTTer smells amazing.. I wanted to eat it every time I opened the tub. It worked so well on my sons nappy rash after just one application. The tub is a really generous size and as you don't need to use a lot of cream, I think it will last for ages!! Made of natural products too so no nasty things going onto little one's skin.
Immediately upon opening this amazing stuff the smell is what pulls you in. I am genuinely amazed at how great it smells. I liked the texture, a little on the 'oily' side but it's not as bad as some other products I've used. It works wonders on hair! And in general as a body butter for massages etc. I did use it for rashes but found it had no effect in that department at all.
As a rash cream I wouldn't recommend it. But as an all over general body butter, for massages and for hair I definitely recommend.
Will be buying more. Have fallen in love with this product.
