Default KMS Curl Up Curling Balm

Has anyone used this? I am not sure if it is okay though. Here are the ingredients:
Water, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Magnesium Sulfate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Pollen Extract, Carbomer, Oleth 20, Benzophenone-4, Triethanolamine, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tormentil Extract (Potentilla Erecta Root), Yarrow (Achillea Millefolium) Extract, Wild Cherry Extract (Prunus Serotina Bark), Arnica Montana Extract, Sage Extract (Salvia Officianalis Leaf), Styrene/VP Copolymer, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Red 4, Yellow 5, Ext Violet 2, Fragrance
I am not sure about the Magnesium Sulfate. What is that? Also Propylene Glycol?

ohhhhhh . . . magnesium sulfate, a curl enhancer like in recoil.

Where did you see it and how much? Aren't they carrying this at Target now?

I'm not sure if Target has it. I've had this for awhile. Before I started CG.
I think I got it at Trade Secret. But a lot of the drug stores now have the higher end hair products. Yesterday I found Abba Creme Moist at Rite Aid.
So magnesium sulfate is a curl enhancer? What exactly is recoil?

I have used this and liked it -- it's a bit like Re:coil. Very thick.

But it's quite expensive for the size of the package.

SuZen-Do you think it's more expensive than recoil? Recoil is expensive too but a little goes a long way. How does it compare to recoil?

I saw it in Target yesterday. $17.99 for a 6.8 oz tube. You can probably find it online cheaper, but then there's the s&h.

Recoil is a 6 oz tube, so the price is similar.

I get Re:coil in the large size so it's a little less expensive per ounce.

I think I use a bit more of the KMS styler than Re:coil.

I didn't like the Curling Balm. It's more of a gel than a balm, and did nothing to define my waves. It just made them crunchy and frizzy. I do like the Curl Up Control Creme though.

Oh, you know, I was thinking of the Control Cream, not the Curling Balm. My bad! Ignore everything I said!
