Sponsor spotlight: CJ's BUTTer

From May 1-12, 2012 I'll be participating in the Daily Mothering Mothers day blog hop. Daily Mothering will be having a huge grand prize package of Awesome cloth diapers and other great things!

As the giveaway gets closer I'll have more information about the grand prize. So far there are 97 different blogs participating! So many awesome possibilities to win cloth diapers!

I have a great prize pack lined up for you from some wonderful sponsors. Today I'm going to tell you about my first sponsor, CJ's BUTTer.

CJ S. Miller started CJ's BUTTer in her kitchen in the hopes of making a cloth diaper friendly diaper cream for her own two children. The original BUTTer formula she created is not only an amazing cloth diaper friendly diaper rash cream, but there have been over 20 other uses found for this out of this world product. Since this humble beginning, the line has expanded to over a dozen other products. Most of the products come in over 3 dozen scent options. I had the pleasure of trying some of these amazing products and I'm so in love with these amazing products!

About a week ago Tabitha was diagnosed with eczema. The Dr gave us some steroid cream to use because it had gotten so out of hand and nothing I tried was making it any better. The steroid cream works, but I really don't want to keep using that stuff on my three year old. A few days ago her arms started to look like the eczema was moving so I started using the CJ's BUTTer unscented formula on her arms, and i'm already seeing an improvement. It's amazing. I've used a ton of products on her since I first noticed what I thought at first was diaper rash and besides the steroid cream, CJ's BUTTer is the only thing that has helped!

I've been using the CJ's BUTTer on my elbows because they were getting really dry as well and I love how amazing my skin feels now.

Another product I recieved was the CJ's BUTTer Spritz. Oh my gosh I love this stuff! Sometimes Tabitha gets way too wiggly to use the cream so I can very quickly spritz her and rub it in and she can run off. She actually asks me to spritz her now which is a great sign of how amazing this stuff is. The day my package from CJ's came in the mail, I had neglected to put on sunscreen and then went on a three hour walk and came back with a total sunburn. I was so excited to get my package from CJ's in the mail that day, I spritzed the CJ's BUTTer Spritz all over my burn and the next morning there was no pain in my sunburn. I used it twice a day for a few days and my sun burn turned into a tan and didn't peel!

My favorite item that came was CJ's Carcass Cleaner. This made with natural soap to provide a truly amazing product. I have been using it in a wipes solution and I love it. I had been using a different wipes solution and i hated it. My wipes smelled funky no matter what, the wipes solution was just gross smelling and majorly greasy. CJ's Carcass Cleaner isn't greasy at all. And it smells so amazing. I got the Lavender and Tea Tree Oil scent and its amazing. No more funky smell in the wipes. This stuff is Ah-Maz-Ing! Seriously! This is going to be my go to wipe solution from now on!

I also got to try CJ's BUTTer Lip Balm. Its wonderful, I am totally a lip balm snob. I have tried so many kinds of Lip Balm and most are junk, but I L-O-V-E CJ's BUTTer Lip Balm. It leaves my lips feeling silky smooth, which in this crazy Idaho weather that totally dries me out is way hard to do.

They have so many amazing scents! I absolutely love the scents I was sent. All so amazing.

    • ~~NEW~~  Sweet Memories (Awapuhi):  Have you ever encountered a scent that just takes you back to a special time and place?  This Awapuhi (Ah-vah-poo-hee) scent is named for CJ’s mom.  It’s a dreamy, clean scent used in many salon shampoos.  Technically a fruity-floral scent, it stands out from the rest as it is light, airy,  super clean,  and not particularly floral.  Give it a try….it’s simply beautiful—just like mom.

    • Lullaby Baby Lotion: This is a gorgeous, soft, irresistible designer baby fragrance! With soft notes of leafy green, peach, melon, coconut and honey, and reminiscent of Johnson’s Baby Magic lotion, this fragrance is a tribute to the softness and innocence of babies.
    • Monkey Farts:  You asked for it and we listened!!  For once the rather unattractive name is not an indicator of the quality of this excellent fragrance.  A truly unique fragrance that begins with top notes of fresh banana and juicy grapefruit, middle notes of kiwi, bubblegum, and strawberries; and a hint of vanilla as a base note.
    • My Pixie Pie:  Named after CJ’s pet name for her little girl…A beautiful mixture of cherries, toasted almonds and finished with a touch of vanilla and coconut, this sweet fragrance is aptly named.  BOTTOM LINE:  A princess in pink, with some fairy wings and a tutu, poised and ready to tackle big brother when the mood strikes.
    • Cucumber Melon: A hot afternoon, and a blend that cooled the warm summer day!  This baby is fantastic!!  Top notes of fresh cucumber, ripe melons, apple, and pear lead to a floral heart of muguet, rose, jasmine, and cyclamen. A rich, sweet drydown is provided by oakmoss and vanilla.
    • Sea spice: A truly gender neutral ocean scent sure to please!  Rugged, yet refreshingly light.  Fresh top notes of ozone (“fresh air”) and citrus lead to a soft middle of sea kelp and champagne. This shore essence is completed with soft notes of driftwood, musk, and just a hint of Indonesian clove oil.BOTTOM LINE: Awesomely gender neutral, light and airy!
    • Honeyed Patchouli:  Okay all you Patchouli haters, you’ve got to try this! All of my testers gave it 2 thumbs up!! The sweet smell of honeycomb wrapped around patchouli twigs. With light notes of candied fruit & lemon peel. (Elitha’s Employee “second-favorite”)
    • Green Irish Tweed:  Who couldn’t adore this light, but masculine fragrance type from Creed? It was originally created for the sophisticated Cary Grant and later worn by celebs such as Richard Gere and Robert Redford. A fruity top note of lemon verbena, middle notes of iris & violets & at the base is mysore sandalwood & amber. You will not be disappointed with this refined, gentleman’s scent.   Masculine, yet light enough for your baby boy!!
    • Ginger Lime: A wonderful lime with a tinge of ginger.  Deliciously citrus-y with a little kick!
    • Warm Vanilla Cake: Quite simply the richest, most buttery vanilla in the entire universe!  (Mark’s employee “second favorite”)
    • Oatmeal, Milk & Honey: This blend is a perfect marriage of oatmeal, milk, and honey — mellow, soothing, with just a hint of sweetness — the comfort food of fragrance.
    • Cherry blossom
    • Coconut Lime Dream: A luscious blend of creamy coconut and tangy lime.
    • Toasted Almond & Cherry blossom
    • Pink Sugar:  This boutique best-seller begins with notes of sweet, sugary lemon drops and pink cotton candy. A fruity-floral middle of red fruit, fig leaves, caramel and raspberry leads to a sweet vanilla-musk base. BOTTOM LINE: Here’s your chance to smell like sugar, Sugar!
    • Bamboo & Lotus Blossom (light and flowery)
    • New Mown Hay — the perfect combination of earthy and sweet! A best seller! It is an unpretentious, down-home blend of fresh hay notes brightened by a touch of citrus and floral. Did I already say unpretentious? Good, because there’s no perfumey, show-offy, big city hijinks in this here scent.
    • Blueberry Crumble–A pleasing blend of plump summer ripened blueberries, and crispy oatmeal topping warm from the oven. Rich and buttery, with a hint of spice and vanilla.  (Mark’s employee favorite)
    • Love Spell–Top notes of peach, mango, strawberry, and mandarin flow into a complex middle of apple blossom, rose, tamarind, and coconut milk. The fragrance is completed with smooth notes of musk, vanilla, and precious woods. Bottom Line: A very likable scent — bursting with juicy peach and mango — perfect for the hot, hot days of summer.

    To Buy:
    Really I can't think of any reason not to buy CJ's BUTTer products, They are amazing. They work great, are cloth diaper safe and smell yummy! Not to mention the price is outstanding. Some products in the cloth diapering world are very expensive but CJ's BUTTer products are very reasonably priced.
