The Original CJ's BUTTer and More - CJ's Unique Boutique Products Review

As a new momma, Ive been searching for some great natural skin care products for my family.  And as a new momma to cloth diapering, I've been needing something safe and natural for my little one's sensitive tooshy and something that will be safe on her cloth diapers as well.

Along my quest for a miracle bum cream, a friend mentioned something called CJ's BUTTer.  Cj's BUTTer?  Hmmmm.....I had never heard of such a thing but being the overly curious momma that I am, I decided to look into this CJ's BUTTer.  I stumbled upon CJ's Unique Boutique, the makers of CJ's BUTTer and low and behold, they carry everything from natural bum friendly creams and body lotions, to natural all purpose cleaners and bug repellent and much more.

Cj's Unique Boutique came to be when a stay at home mom (CJ) in Colorado Springs needed a cloth diaper safe diaper rash cream for her children.  After creating her own natural cream and generously offering it to other mommas in need of the same, her business took off as moms from all over discovered what a miracle cream CJ's recipe happened to be.  Now her family's business is the perfect example of success! 
The amazing folks at CJ's Unique Boutique
sent us some of their fabulous products to try and now......were hooked!

The first thing we tried was

The Original CJ's BUTTer is sort of an all purpose miracle cream.  It's uses range from diaper rash to bug bites, and dry skin to chapped lips just to name a few. I decided to use The Original CJ's BUTTer under my little girl's chin.  Now, Emma Bee is not a super chubby baby.  She was a preemie so she is dainty but actually quite pudgy compared to her skinny baby body when she was first introduced to the world.  But one of Emma Bee's problem areas is a little hard to get to space under her teeny tiny chin.  Her issue is that the sun just don't shine there and it doesn't get a chance to air out so in between washings, she tends to get a little red and irritated.  I dabbed a bit of Original CJ's BUTTer under her chin and the redness was gone by the end of the day!

I also put a little Original CJ's BUTTer in her hair to soften and define her itsy bitsy teeny tiny curls.

The Original CJ's BUTTer comes in a variety of sensational scents.  There is also Unscented BUTTer for those of you with sensitive sniffers.  We tried the Unscented, Warm Vanilla Cake scent and the Monkey Farts scent.  Yes.....I said Monkey Farts.  And no, it doesn't smell like what you think it smells like.  Its actually my favorite out of all of the scents we were able to try.  It doesn't smell like a monkey's stinky bum but rather a tropical fruity paradise!

There is also a CJ's BUTTer Stick for convenient, easy application!

We tried that too!

The CJ's BUTTer Stick is going straight into my purse for all of those uh oh moments when were out and about and need a quick something for booboos, bug bites and rashes, sore lips, zits and dry skin or dry cuticles.  The stick twists up for quick and easy application.  And when you're out and cant easily wash your hands, you don't have to worry about sticking dirty fingers in your tub of CJ's BUTTer.  Being a busy momma, I like things that are simple and easy and I love things that save time!  Plus, the Persian Pear scent smells delicious!

And did you know that there is a 

We tried the Sweet Orange scent!  It reminded me of our mother daughter vacations that my momma and I used to take to Florida every other year when I was younger.  My mom and I would always stop at a citrus orchard and get fresh picked oranges.  I miss those trips!

I put some of the CJ's Vegan Formula on Emma Bee's forehead and cheeks.  Shes notorious for getting bumpy rashes along her hairline and cheeks after we wash her hair.  She has very sensitive skin and the numerous brands of baby wash we've tried always give her little bumps.  So I rubbed a bit of the vegan butter on her face and by the end of the day, her cheeks and forehead were as smooth and soft as can be!  And she smells yummy too!

We also tried

I decided to give my little one a soothing rub after her bath today using CJ's Baby Lotion.  I didn't think a baby's skin could really get any softer....but it can!  She was so silky soft after applying CJ's Creamy Body Lotion and she smelled so good!  The great thing about the Lullaby Baby Lotion scent is that it is not overpowering and excessively strong.  Some scented lotions are so strong they give me a headache but this is the perfect bit of olfactory pleasure for your senses.

The best thing about CJ's Creamy Body Lotion for us is that it did not make my little one's sensitive skin break out!  And the soothing smell and the rub really relaxed her before her nap.

Cj's Unique Boutique also has lip balm!!!

My husband came home from work, gave me a kiss and accused me of having cupcakes and not sharing!  He thought my mouth smelled like cake and demanded to know where the cake was.

He was disappointed when I informed him that there was no cake and that the yummy lemony cheesecake goodness resonating from my face was that of my new CJ's BUTTer Lemon Cheesecake Lip Balm.   However, neither of us were disappointed by the softness of my smoocher!

I like CJ's BUTTer Lip Balm for several reasons.  The scent I tried is super yummy.  Its also not overly greasy or thick feeling.  Some lip balms I've tried just feel like you've coated your mouth in a greasy waxy paste.  But CJ's Lip Balm is smooth and sleek.  There is one brand of lip balm I have tried in the past that will remain nameless, but when I tried it, my mouth tasted like I had mistaken a crayon for lip balm.  CJ's Lip Balm doesn't taste like that! There's just a perfect, slight hint of sweetness to it.

There is only one thing that I found that I didn't like about the lip balm.   Actually... I cant really say that its something I didn't like, its more so something to be aware of.  I found that CJ's Lip Balm seems much much softer than other lip balms I've tried, so you just have to make sure you don't press too hard when applying it.  Otherwise you'll have it smooshed all over your face.  Lesson learned.  So be sure to apply gently!

  1. Ive tried a couple of CJs products and really liked them and Id like to try the lotion still. I wish all of their products and scents were natural though.

  2. I finally tried CJs and I absolutely love it! I got the Spritz O Butter in Tea Tree and Lavender. Such a lovely scent! My husband thinks it smells like pine trees; I guess that means he likes it? I just love their products!
