This post is far beyond some average review. I've used Butt Paste ever since Carter was born. Wanna know what I think of it?
I consider it straight up bragging material. An empty, flattened out tube of Butt Paste belongs stapled into Carter's baby book.
Ok fine. So actually we got it a couple weeks after he was born, thinking there just had to be something better than the run of the mill diaper cream we were fiddling with. And you know what? I don't think it's fair to call that stuff diaper cream. It had the consistency of a third grader's glue stick. I can't elaborate for much longer because, well, we ditched that gunk.
I rummaged through our bag of weekly Babies R Us newborn goodies, unboxed the Butt Paste and worked it into my newborn's next diaper change. Its scent is practically delish, and it melts like an expensive, buttery, department store cream onto his skin.
I'm going to admit it. I was a little jealous of his butt. The skin on my face doesn't even get this kind of treatment.
I don't know exactly how the average diaper rash works itself out, except that when I smear Butt Paste on a rash, it doesn't live to see its next diaper change.
Thinking this stuff was truly my own great discovery, I begged my YouTube friends to run out and buy it in one of my videos and included two tubes of it in a baby shower gift for Matt's co-worker.
When sleep eventually worked its way back into my schedule, the fog cleared, and I started noticing Boudreaux's Butt Paste had other products on the shelves - and just in time. Carter had a funny red patch of dry skin on his chin, so I bought Boudreaux's Baby Kisses - a lip treatment meant for dry lips and patches. It cleared up the dry patch and sits happily on my nightstand; I use it every day. (Except for the days Carter swipes it to play with the lid and it goes missing for awhile).
Being the avid blog reader that I am - I recently saw that my favorite brand had an ad on one of the blogs I read and had a little internal fit of jealousy. I love Butt Paste, it only seems right that they make a home on my blog, too. So I took a long shot, contacted the company, and I was stunned to not only get a reply, but get a package in the mail with more products to try.
As far as I'm concerned, this is like writing a letter to Mickey Mouse and having him nonchalantly mail you plane tickets to Disney World.
As soon as I got their gift, I tore through the packaging and cradled in my fingers what I'd been searching for - a bottle of Butt Bath. We just ran out of baby soap, and I've had my eye on this for a while. I squeezed a few tablespoons into Carter's bathwater that night; the steamy air was sweet and crisp, and his water felt strangely soft. I rocked him to sleep a few minutes longer after his bath, just so I could breathe in the scent of his hair.
I'm so, so excited to tell you that Boudreaux's Butt Paste wants send you some products, too!
