The name sounds confusing because it’s not really a gel but more of an Edge Tamer, similar to Curls Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste.
Cantu describes this as:
conditions, smoothes & shines
long-lasting, flake-free hold
Conditions and smoothes frizz and flyaways for shiny, sleek styles with a long-lasting, flake-free hold. Made with pure shea butter and formulated without harsh ingredients.
Directions: Apply to edges and smooth with fingertips or tightly bristled brush.

It has a faint fragrance and vaseline and beeswax-like texture.
I find this product quite heavy and greasy, I also find it doesn’t sleek edges down well even when using a headscarf. If you have type 4 hair like me then you may not find it suitable.
Doesn’t hold, conditions or smoothes, nor is it long lasting.
It does add shine as is flake free.
