We revere our Holy Grails, but underrated finds tickle our fancy just as much. Today’s theme for Top Reviews revolves around just that: unassuming products that’ll impress you from the first use. We’ll even go as far as to call ‘em diamonds in the rough. Now, who’s ready to get digging? Check out the 10 top-rated gems below!

1. PRO STUDIO Beauty Exclusives Mini Pro Blend Egg (4 Pack), now on sale at P615 (limited time only) “I got this before when i was shopping for my make up sponge. I love that you can use this so easily because of the size plus it doesnt absorb all the makeup so you’ll save money for it. And its totally cheap for 4pcs! Im lazy to clean my sponges all the time, to have a 3 extra clean sponge blender for me is a must!” – Kristine

2. NYX Blotting Powder, P620 “I love this product! As someone with an extremely oily t-zone, I simply cannot afford to go out of my house unarmed without blotting paper and powder for retouching. I’m glad this one is so compact and it is definitely a god-send! I like applying it with a powder brush so it doesn’t cake, but it has great staying power and really does effectively minimize shine. Recommended!” Isabella

3. Cascade Cotton Balls & Swab Holder, P139 “When I opened my package from BeautyMNL, I was expecting to see a small box for the holder. Lo and behold, it was much bigger than expected! I used to store all my cotton balls in their original plastic pack and now it looks better on my sink (bonus that it keeps them more sanitary since it has a lid). Really sturdy and it has a good amount of weight. Feels like a high quality product but for a much lower price. Definitely worth it!” – Elora

4. Swan Facial Konjac Puff Sponge, now on sale at P90 (limited time only) “The product does what it promises: gentle exfoliation and buffing, with visible results immediately after use. just enough slough without being too abrasive. use it for your face and any other rough patches. make sure to keep clean and dry for maximum life, squeeze out and hang to dry.” – Abigail

5. Cream Silk Conditioner Dry Rescue, P141 “My hair was bleached and colored so you can just imagine how dry and brittle my once bouncy hair got. I saw this on the shelf and was curious since it is a 2-in-1 treatment. I use this just like i use a regular conditioner, no hassles. My hair felt soft that i am now able to run my fingers in my hair, no tangles. This saves me time and money instead of having monthly hair treatment (w/c everyone knows is expensive).” – Ana

6. V&M Naturals Love Soap, now on sale at P266 (limited time only) “I made the turn to go all organic with everything I use on my body last month and my biggest struggle has been finding the soap that will cleanse my body without drying it out until I found this on BeautyMNL. Oh my lord, this really is heaven sent! The scent transports you to your favorite spa destination and your skin just feels a lot more supple after use. Will definitely hoard these!” – Mary

7. Holika Holika Brow Mascara, P325 “I’ve been using Etude House’s Brow Tint since 2012 and I was pretty contented with it until I tried this. This is just pure perfection for me. The tip keeps the hairs in place and delivers just the right amount of color for your brows. You can go full brow or au naturale with this brow mascara!” – Mary V.

8. L’Occitane Verveine Shower Gel, now on sale at P1,040 “The scent and aroma of this bath gel just screams elegant and luxurious. it’s citrus-y and vibrant but at the same time oddly calming and refreshing. Yes, it’s a bit expensive but if you’re looking for heavy rejuvenation, then this is definitely a go-to product. The price is worth everything!” – Nicholai

9. Tony Moly Easy Touch Auto Eyeliner, P348 “THIS IS THE BEST EYELINER THAT EVER EXISTED. Trust me on this. It stays true to its word, it really lasts all day/night! This is the perfect eyeliner to use for tightlining, as it stays put right up there. It will never smear nor smudge. It will never give you the dreaded panda eyes hahaha! I love this one so much, I have three of this. Currently using one, the other two are my reserves, just in case this one gets phased out or something hahaha!” – Veronica

10. Detail MakeBrow Eyebrow Palette, now on sale at P172 “I have received this product as a gift from a friend and I can say that this product is probably the ultimate dark horse when it comes to eyebrow kits. I have used more expensive products similar to this one and you can’t even tell the differences in the outputs. What makes this one stand out though is the mirror attached to the kit which is mostly what the other kits missed.” – Carmela
