I think I probably would like FSG, but i haven't used it much. My first attempt at making FSG came out pretty good - I also split the batch in half and added conditioner to make a cream gel. After that, haven't been able to make a consistent batch - either comes out too runny or too thick. I liked the results I got the first time, but I haven't felt like spending the time trying to figure out how to repeat my results. I also worry about bacteria, etc. I ordered some preservative to add to it, but haven't used it yet because i don't have the kind of scale to properly measure the amounts i need. So, I like FSG (I think) but I don't like having to make it. It's easier for me to use something already made. I have considered ordering some from someone who makes it (like Botticelli botanicals or one of those other etsy shops) but haven't gotten around to it.
