I rotate three cheap CG gels that you might want to try:
Aura Hypoallergenic ($5 at Sally's)
Biotera ($6, I think, at Sally's)
HE Body Envy ($3 or 4 at a drugstore)

HEBE is kind of tough to find; I've only found it at one Target in the city of Chicago, but I love it. It smells better than HE SMU and has good hold, but it's more flexible than HE SMU.
