Guys, I share your fascination and bemusement. It's the voice as much as - maybe more than - the beautiful face...
Her name is Daniella van Graas, and she's Dutch. That is, if the one you mean is the one that does more or less all the talking: "...I've found a moisturizer for life!".
She is not the one uglydog is talking about, whose name is Patricia Sanders. Patricia appears in those adds that involve a waterfall.
Both are beautiful, needless to say, or the ad agency on the Aveeno account wouldn't be doing their jobs. Daniella has a small acting resume (see Wikipedia) together with her modeling portfolio. So far as I know, Patricia has only modeled so far.
In my experience, actresses differ from models in that they can project some essence of personality when they speak as well as when they only move and smile. Thus, I would expect that should one be so fortunate as to meet Daniella, that engaging voice would be the property of an engaging person.
I have no notion about whether Patricia Sanders is dull or brilliant, though I have neither met nor heard of many top models who were totally vapid. That kind of thing tends to come through the lens, thus most models have something going on between their ears. The personality spectrum among models runs from warm to repellent, and seems about normally distributed, with perhaps a bias toward self defense (they get hit upon non-stop whenever they're not working. Either that or peoples' reactions to them are highly unnatural, at least).
Since Patricia Sanders certainly projects youth, beauty and vitality in plenty onto the video tape and thus into the living rooms and dens of America, she isn't totally brainless even if, like poor Cathy Ireland, she has the voice of a chipmunk.
Thus, while I can't say anything for certain about Patricia Sanders' personality because I know no one who has met her, in my opinion uglydog is probably living a rich inner life. "...kicked her to the curb" indeed...
Even if she had nothing much to say - there is such a thing as art collecting. As Rene said to Rick, "you shouldn't throw women away like that. Someday they may become scarce."
Keep on appreciating that art, and
All the best - Rob
