It looks CG to me, no outright cones. Watch out for the castor oil though, it is water-soluble, so you should be ok. But some curlies, including me, experience build-up with water-soluble cones and oils.

Have you tried the other HE gels? A lot of people really like the Set Me Up, Body Envy, and Totally Twisted. I think those would be more cost-effective for your everyday regular hair, and you can leave the shimmery gel for evenings out, etc.
