CJ's BUTTer review

Awhile back I won a tube of CJ's BUTTer from a facebook giveaway and let me tell you, I was SO excited to try it out! I have read some awesome reviews of this product, and wanted to try it out for myself. I chose the Love Spell scent it smells devine!! The day that I got it, we were leaving for holidays, so before we left I changed J and applied the BUTTer to him bum. We traveled from Vancouver to Princeton B.C. and stopped to change J. As I took off his diaper I noticed a terrible 'blister' like rash on his scrotum. The diaper wasn't terribly wet so I knew it wasn't from being in a super wet diaper for 3 hours. The only thing I could think of was that we had changed his bum cream.

So once I changed him I didn't put anymore on. I reverted back to using my normal diaper cream and within two changes it had cleared up.
I was so sad that he had a reaction to it, as I was looking forward to writing a wonderful review for CJ's.

I had mentioned to a couple of my facebook friends what had happened and my FB friend L said she had contacted CJ to let her know that this happened to us and to get in touch with her. So I did!

First off, let me say that CJ's has some WONDERFUL customer service. We spoke about how J could be allergic to the coconut oil in their regular formula or it could possibly be the scent. So with that being said, I was offered to try the new Vegan formula of the BUTTer. Of course at this time the Canada Post strike was going on so I knew I was going to have to wait a bit, but it was ALL worth the wait.

CJ sent me a full size jar (4 oz) of the new Vegan formula. I'll have to get a list of ingredients but I know there is no coconut oil in it!

The day that I received this, I tried it out right away! This formula is creamier than the Original BUTTer, I find, and isn't 'oily'. It glides on so smoothly and is just nice to the touch.

J had a slight diaper rash (teething) so I wanted to see if it cleared it up.. and you know what.. after ONE application J's bum was clear of red!! I was so happy, that this formula didn't irritate his bum and that it cleared up the existing rash.

Along with my 4oz jar, CJ also sent me a sample of the original BUTTer, with no scent to it. Due to J's reaction I wanted to see if it was indeed the oil in the formula or if it was the scent. I applied the original non scented to his bum and at the next diaper change we had a rash, thus it must be the oil (which is fine by me, cause I LOVE this stuff for myself lol)

Taken from CJ's website:

(None of our customers have had any staining or repelling issues.) CJ’s BUTTer™ is soothing for baby and also aids in the easy, smooth clean-up of dirty diapers.

 Let me just say that I am in love with the BUTTer and so is C. J's little bum is also in love as he has no more teething rash on his bum. My over rating if I were to give it out of 5 stars would be 5/5 . This is just an awesome product and I look forward to trying her other products as well.
