    Just 9 Things To Try In February

    Because we tried them for you in January.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    This post features a mix of items that we purchased with our own money and those that were provided to us at no cost for the sake of review. (But! We’re under no obligation to write a review of those things, let alone a positive review.)

    1. An easy-to-use pill remover stone you should try if the whole "sweater shaver machine" thing scares you a bit. Just brush the pumice-like stone gently over your favorite knit that's seen better days and watch the magic happen.

    2. A prickly pear cactus for an effortless way to add a new plant friend to your space — especially if you even forget to water *yourself* sometimes.

    3. A PhoneSoap sanitizer to kill 99.9% of germs on the toilet seat that is your phone. It fits almost all phone sizes, demolishes bacteria with UV rays, AND charges your device at the same time.

    And if you want another reason, check out this Amazon reviewer who tested the bacteria levels on their daughter's and husband's phones before and after use. W O W.

    4. A pair of cozy socks with extra cushion in the toe and heel for extra comfort. Plus each purchase supports a different cause — these polar bear bbs? They support Conservation International.

    5. Pixi Glow Tonic, a 5% glycolic acid toner that gently exfoliates dead skin and increases cell turnover, helping your skin look glowing and fresh — without drying it our thanks to the aloe vera formula (and no alcohol).

    6. An exercise bike with a *built-in* desk surface so you can put the pedal to the metal when it comes to writing those reports you've been putting off *and* squeezing in a low-key workout.

    7. A Dorinda-inspired candle for anyone (including yourself, of course) who just needs things to be ~made nice~ — even if they're staying in the metaphorical Fish Room.

    8. Seed, a daily probiotic that's designed to help your digestive system. Everybody poops, after all!

    9. Glossier Lash Slick, a mascara that coats eyelashes with super-tiny fibers for a natural-looking extending effect that's *also* water-resistant.
