AVEENO®: The Beauty Of Nature (Farm-To-Formulation)

This is a sponsored post for AVEENO®. I'm a 2014 AVEENO® Ambassador. All opinions are 100% my own.  
I received a gift basket from AVEENO®. The contents of the gift basket are fully disclosed in this post.

AVEENO®  sent me the cutest gift basket filled with yummy snacks yesterday! Thank You AVEENO®! They're celebrating the launch of a video series called, "The Beauty of Nature". It's really interesting. Have you heard the terms "farm-to-school" or "farm-to-table"? Well AVEENO®  has a farm-to-formulation system! "The Beauty of Nature" is a series of video narratives celebrating ingredients found in nature and their potential to help enhance one’s natural beauty. The first digital short (below) is narrated by Brand Ambassador Jennifer Aniston and highlights the compelling farm-to-formulation journey of the AVEENO® Brand’s first ACTIVE NATURALS® ingredient: oat. I wanted to share it with you. Have a great Tuesday!

Video Synopsis
Feeling Beautiful ... Naturally!
1. Everything begins with local farms & farmers who produce & harvest high quality OATS.
2. Those OATS are put through a special milling process that turns the grain into an extremely fine oatmeal
(the same quality as the oatmeal you eat).
3. These SUPER OATS contain FIVE (5) vital elements that can be found in healthy skin
(a. proteins b. antioxidants c. enzymes d. vitamins e. lipids)

"I’ve used AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion since I was in my 20s but working on this project and learning everything that goes into their skincare products – how they are conscious of the ingredients chosen, how they’re grown, how they’re formulated – has given me a whole new appreciation for the Brand.  I realize that what makes all the difference is actually the story behind the products so it's great to be able to help share that story,"
- AVEENO® Brand Ambassador Jennifer Aniston

AHHHHH I LOVE JENNIFER ANISTON. That gift basket they sent you is so sweet! Haha everything always seems to link back to your AVSB. You must really love beauty products. I can't believe you actually order online and see what other countries have to offer. I have never heard of Harbour City Mall but sounds like I will have to do a bit of research!

Mica said...

they send you the best gift baskets! It's getting really exciting to see what they will send you next - I kinda hope they don't stop sending you things so we get to see more, hehe! :)

And of course, I want chocolate now :P

OMG, that's so cute they sent you that gift basket. I've actually been seeing this with other bloggers and brands they work with and it's a good idea. How could you not share that much candy. hehe. It's really cool you're working with Aveeno too because I've used their lotions a lot especially for my hands and my mom always has for sensitive skin. I love that Jennifer Aniston is their ambassador too. What a perfect spokesperson. :)


jo said...

Hi Kim, that's nice how they sent you a candy basket. They look yummy! I use Aveeno products too! So happy they chose you to be the ambassador! Thanks for your sweet words on my recent post! You're very kind.

I am a "farm to table" fan! We love dining at these types of restaurants when we travel. Great video. I was a farm girl as a child, so this takes me back. I also know it's true that natural ingredients do make better products. Enjoy your sweets, Sweetie! T.

I really like when companies are open with their creation process, when they aren't I feel like there must be some dark secret. Very cute gift basket, too! Thanks for sharing!

miss b said...

Wow! So many bars of chocolate - what a surprise for you. Well Jennifer Aniston is certainly a good ambassador for the product as she always looks so well groomed and fresh. Interesting video. I like to learn more about companies like this. I think it gives us more confidence in the products.

Mo said...

How can I get cool gift baskets like you? No, seriously. ;-)
