When it comes to beauty products, Jennifer Aniston admits she can be a bit of a pack rat.

“I get yelled at,” the actress tells PEOPLE. “I’ve had makeup in my drawer for 10 years that I should probably get rid of. I do get new mascaras and things like that, but I also have this weird thing [about saving]. Remember when Calvin Klein made makeup? That was in the ’90s. I think I just threw out a lipstick of his.”

And fashion-wise? “I have jeans from my twenties that I can’t get rid of,” Aniston jokes. “I still have red loafers from Friends! I have a nostalgia about them.”

On the topic of skincare, however, Aniston is much more minimal, relying on Aveeno’s face wash (she’s the line’s global brand ambassador). And now the actress has narrated a digital video short that’s the first of a series highlighting the power of natural ingredients used in the brand’s products.

“I’ve used Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion since I was in my twenties,” says Aniston. “But working on this project and learning everything that goes into their skincare products … has given me a whole new appreciation for the brand.”

Some things — like those Levis — will never go out of style.

For much more from Aniston’s interview with PEOPLE, look for the upcoming issue on newsstands Friday.

how convenient that she’s always used a brand she currently works for!

Calvin Klein still makes makeup. Just picked up a ck mascara at ulta a couple weeks ago.

Annabelle on

And here I was hoping she’d say she kept the Frankie Say Relax tshirt from Ross. :P

annoyed on

oh god she is sooooboring!!!!

Alex on

I have never understood this woman’s appeal. She can barely act and she is so unattractive, so coarse featured.

Molly on

Can she be more superficial? She is getting closer to Cavallaris, Kardashians, and Cyruses

Kate on

Hasn’t she claimed from her Friends days to use Neutrogena….the transparent orange facial soap? I’ve read it in 100 interviews over the years but now it’s Aveeno she’s used since her twenties? Uh huh.

Kate on

@Chloe Calvin Klein’s current makeup is a relaunch of his nineties brand…..relaunched in 2012 or 2013……

JenFan on

I just love her!!I wold use aveeno too if I didn’t have more of an affection for a differen brand.

Lolita on

She’s being interviewed about her product promotions, why would it be deep? I have no clue why you people who hate her so intensely, bother reading her interviews?

june on

What do her fans see in her????

All she talks about is her mediocre looks. Hair this, Aveeno that, hair again, tanning, hair again, don’t forget her HAIR!!!!!!~

deee on

I really doubt she uses Aveeno. She probably uses the most expensive products out there!
And if it is sooooooooooo good, why is she always seen getting facials at spa?

Amy M on

She certainly doesn’t have any bras left over from her Friends days. She clearly never wore any on any episode.

Guest on

Yawn1Another boring Jennifer Anniston story. I wonder if she scratches her butt will People. com cover the story?Who bloody cares if she keeps old make-up. She looks like an old hag anyhow.

carecara on

I like her but i think she is not getting married and will not have kids.marriage we can do without but no kids she is only going to have her millions nice ….but sad.

moongal on

I wonder if she cares that Aveeno tests its products on animals?! I guess she doesn’t as long as she gets paid!

Lix on

Aveeno with a side of Botox is more like it.

Ellen on

Why so much hate? She seems nice a nice enough woman and yes her hair is amazing!

Zarah on

I am not going to use Aveeno anymore.

K. on

Me,me,me,me,me,me…ENOUGH. So vain.

Amy on

I don’t know how anyone can have the same hair style for like 20 years. She is unattractive and very boring! It’s a shame she will never marry and have a family. She has a career, but it’s beyond me why anyone goes to her boring movies with that same hair do in EVERY movie. She can’t even act.😁
