Product Review: The AMAZING CJ's BUTTer Spritz

Posted by Stacey on 11/25/2012 to Cloth Diaper Accessories

Everyone is shopping away this weekend so I thought it would be the perfect time to review one of the great accessories for sale this weekend here at Diaper Junction. CJ's BUTTer Spritz is the liquid version of the popular CJ's BuTTer Diaper Cream and this little bottle is pretty amazing.

Skin, particularly baby skin, is most likely to become irritated when its either missing an essential component or being exposed to things that remove essential components. New baby skin is protected from amniotic fluid by vernix but once it's exposed to dry air, changes occur on the molecular level that makes it vulnerable. This is the root of most baby skin conditions like baby acne, cradle cap and diaper rash. If skin is the problem, CJ's is the solution - read here to find out why

By cloth diapering, you are already doing half of the work to protect your little one's most sensitive skin but, if and when irritation occurs, CJ's BUTTer Spritz. is a fabulous remedy particularly when skin is sore to the touch. It's not chemical or petroleum based, it's simply essential oils that restore skin back to it's natural moisturized and balanced condition - giving it what it needs to fight for itself!

Here are the ingredients: shea butter, olive oil, coconut oil, lanolin, beeswax, cocoa butter, Vitamin E (derived from soy), gluten-free colloidal oatmeal, and essential oils.

That's it! Nothing with 15 syllables!

My personal experience with CJ's started with my then 6 week-old baby girl's cradle cap (AKA Seborrheic Dermatitis). It's caused by an over-production of skin oil which is what skin can do when its chronically dry. Cradle cap oil deposits (yuck) can create the perfect environment for yeast called Malassezia (super yuck). Cradle cap in babies is a result of the drastic transition from water to air. The skin just goes a little crazy trying to find the right moisture balance and the over produced oil builds up on the scalp. I would brush the flakes out of her hair while she was nursing but they just weren't going away. I had tried different washing frequencies but I couldn't get her scalp out of this greasy/dry/ shedding cycle. This is where the spritz factor came in. My babies have a good amount of hair so being able to spray it in was so much easier than using a cream. I sprayed her head with CJ's BUTTer Spritz around dinnertime and let it soak in for about 30 minutes. Then I gave her a bath and washed her hair, scrubbing with her little brush from the hospital. The next day it looked 90% better and I never had to re-apply the CJ's because 2 days later, it was completely gone. As a mom, you understand how important instant gratification can be. I was so impressed that I started trying it on other things!

There are other cool uses for CJ's and Im looking for more. So far I have used it for:

1. Diaper Rash (well that makes sense, right?) The best part was not having to rub a cream on irritated skin!

2. My 4-year olds eczema.

3. Baby Acne (it was gone in 2-3 days just in time for her baptism!)

4. My 7 year olds skin around his lips (he licks them in the winter they look HORRIBLE)

5. My dry skin - heels, elbows, hands, cuticles

6. Removing stubborn eye make-up

If you have used CJ's, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't tried it, now is the perfect time and you can click here to check out CJ's BUTTer Spritz. I have Monkey Fart scent which makes my boys giggle and reminds me of a pina colada ahhhhhh.

If you use it, please post what you think of it and what you use it for...just in case there are things I haven't come up with yet!

I am so excited to get mine in the mail! I ordered some on Black Friday :) We moved about a year ago to a very dry climate (compared to what we are used to) and my 2 and 4 year old have the worst eczema. Nothing has worked, and believe me I've tried everything. On top of that my 2 year old looks like she has her cradle cap back(something we have struggled with since birth!)Very dry thick patches in her poor hair. I can't wait to use CJ's!

My son has had eczema since he was a year old, and I thought I had tried everything to help him, including essential oils and oatmeal. I'm going to have to try this, AND I love that it can be used for several different problems. I was just wondering though if it was cloth diaper safe or if it needed to be used with a liner

I know this post is quite a few years old but I wanted to share my input on Cjs just in case someone stumbles upon this post like me that doesn't know about this magical stuff. Used it for every diaper change on my daughter whip is now 5. She never experienced diaper rash. If I had a friend who's little one was having diaper rash problems I'd give them some to try (And these are all disposable using friends) all of thorn love the results. Since my daughter is 5 she is starting to wipe her butt on her own, and well we all I know how that can go. ???? she will get a red fanny sometimes and we just use it after her bath. The next day she always wakes up all better. Now for my use of Cjs... ever since I had my daughter I've had issues with wet dandruff and my skin between my eyes and around my eyebrows peeling, feeling very dry and itchy, but being super oily. I've tried so many things and nothing works. The dandruff I can keep at bay most days with daily washing, but the peeling between the eyes is relentless. Then i find out from my mom she has the same eyebrow issue as me and has had it her whole life (Yay... not) so on my way to bed last night I put some on saying might as well try. Y'all my skin is so smooth now! This is the only thing that has worked in 5 years. I just used the regular creme one. Here's to hoping for a permanent solution.
