What we bought this week

After spending a frankly inordinate amount of time researching (I have the spreadsheets to prove it), I purchased a gently used Sony A7C mirrorless camera. I love its compact size, amazing autofocus, and superb image quality. It blows any smartphone camera out of the water, but it takes a lot more time and focus to use than any digital camera. It was an expensive purchase, but buying used helps, and it’s still much cheaper than Sony’s high-end digital cameras. -Harry Rabinowitz, reporter

I’ve been looking for a new vacuum since Black Friday, but was having trouble finding something I fell in love with. Last weekend I noticed that Tineco’s Pure One S11 Spartan vacuum cleaner was for sale at Walmart. Tineco is a brand Select has written about and the vacuum has many of the features I was looking for. I jumped at the price and bought it and have been in love ever since. It comes with plenty of accessories so you can get into hard-to-reach areas and clean furniture, and it also converts to a handheld vacuum. It does a great job of getting rid of pet hair on my floors that I could barely see, so that’s a big win. – Zoe Malin, Associate Updates Editor

Hands down, Skin Food Fix Shea Body Butter is my favorite body moisturizer. I originally found it in a small boutique in Montauk, NY (Skin Food Fix is ​​a small woman-owned business) and became a bit obsessed. When I got to the bottom of the jar, I googled it to order more, and happily, it just came. Here’s why I love it: The whipped “souffle” texture is light and fluffy, but it really softens my skin beautifully. It also gives my skin a nice glow, but somehow it doesn’t feel super greasy. According to the company’s website, it is free of parabens and cancer-causing chemicals and uses organic, fair-trade shea butter. The only thing I don’t like is the smell that unscented natural creams usually have. Not bad, I just prefer a light scent. This time I also bought the “balm for everything” Nilotica Shea Butter, so stay tuned for an update after trying it. – Leah Ginsberg, Editorial Director
