Northern Essence Better Butt(er) Cream Review
Wouldn't you love to find a diaper rash cream that can also be used for other things as well? Northern Essence’s Better Butt(er) Cream can do it all! Not only is it a fantastic diaper rash cream and cloth diaper safe, but it also works great on dry cracked skin such as your hands! This cream is also perfect for diaper rashes caused by yeast since it will not irritate the yeast and make it worse!
Cost: ★★★★★ Depending on what size tub you buy, obviously, the price will change. For a 2 ounce tub, the price is $7.95. The 5 ounce tub is $14.95.
Ease of Use: ★★★★☆ This light and fluffy cream comes in a nice little tub with an easy screw on/off lid. The tub is wide and easy to get the cream out of. The cream itself is very easy to apply since it is so soft and light. Obviously, a cream of this type cannot come in stick form, so there is a little bit of mess that you need to wash off of your hands or simply rub into your hands for the moisture!
Smell: ★★★★☆ This cream is marketed as “fragrance free” and is almost completely odorless, but there is a faint oil smell to it. It is so faint that you can barely make it out. The smell is very clean and fresh and almost non-existent, so it is not offensive to those very sensitive smellers out there! There are no added fragrances though which means no additional ingredients to possibly cause reaction.
Effectiveness: ★★★★★ As I mentioned above, this cream can be used for any type of diaper rash or skin irritation. At the first sign of redness, I applied just a tiny bit of this cream and her rash was gone. This cream is full of Hemp Butter, Shea Butter, Meadowfoam Oil, Grapefruit Seed Extract, and other ingredients. Many sensitive skinned babies (and even adults) cannot use creams with essential oils due to their sensitivities. This cream does not contain any essential oils and is perfect for even the most sensitive of skin.
Overall: ★★★★★ This cream is fantastic on both my daughter’s easily rashed tush and my extremely sensitive and easily dried hands. This cream is obviously marketed as a diaper cream, but I found it to also be an exceptional healing hand cream. (only I would think to put diaper rash cream on my hands! LOL) Overall, I love this cream! I did wonders on Miss A’s bum and I found a perfect second use for it too!
Total Stars: 23/25
