Curl cream suggestions?

Has anyone ever used the Beautiful Curls Shea Butter Fortifying Curl Lotion? I really like the way my hairs looks when I use a curl cream under my gel. I am currently using IOS Bouncy Creme, but now that I have learned more about my hair, this product is not the best for me. (too many humectants and protiens. I get nice definition, but ends up getting very frizzy) And I would prefer more natural ingredients. After scouring the internet I finally found the Beautiful Curls and the ingredients look good, but I couldn't find a lot of reviews for it. Thanks for the help! :)
Fine/Med texture, normal porosity and elasticity (I think)

    I was using Organix Moroccan Oil Curl Cream (found at drugstores) and really liked it. I have since switched over to using Sweet Curls Elixirs flax seed gel (with mag sulfate added in) and find I don't need a curl cream any longer. I apply my leave in conditioner, then use the FSG, and that's it. The dew point in my area right now is -5, so I'm avoiding humectants as much as possible too. This FSG leaves my hair shiny, soft, and frizz free. I get 3 days of good hair before I need to wash again, and I don't have to reapply more gel during those days. I'm seriously impressed. My new HG product, that's for sure. She also makes a flax seed curl cream. I've heard nice things about that too.

    I've been using the desert essence curl cream for the past couple weeks and I really like it. I wasn't using a cream in the summer, but found I had to change my routine a bit in low dews.
