Review: Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion

6. August 2014


Another product from Illi, and it is from the same MeMeBox Global No. 11 like the sheet mask I reviewed previously: Illi’s Fresh Moisture Body Lotion. As the name already says, this is a body lotion with a fresh citrus scent. I never ordered a body lotion from a korean brand, because it is much more conventient to use one from a local drugstore – and cheaper, too, but since I received it, I want to share my opinion with you.

Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion

Illi is a Korean skincare brand, part of Amore Pacific group which is known by famous brands like Laneige, Etude House, Innisfree and many more. The products known are mainly focussing on body care, like lotions and body washes. The package design of the Illi products are simple and appear very clean or medical. They have a range of different lotions, each addressing a certain skin type. The lotion can be used on body and face, but I only used it on my body. The Illi Fresh Moisture Body Lotion is designed for hydrating dry skin and giving it back its elasticity.

This is a deluxe size sample containing 100 ml of the product. The full size product contains 350 ml and comes in a pump bottle. The description is only written in Korean on the backside of the bottle. The material is very sturdy. This is also the reason I would have preferred a pump for this smaller bottle, too, because the plastic is hard to squeeze and a pump would be easier to work with.

The product has a light yellowish color and smells of citrus. The main ingredients according to Illi’s product site are Gingseng for vitality, Yuzu lemon for stimulating and camllia oil for the glow. The product is lightweight and absorbs quickly and leaves no stickiness or greasiness on the skin. After application the skin has a silky soft touch which is very nice. Unfortunatelly, I think it is too light for addressing very dry skin. Since it is designed for moisturing, I was a bit dissapointed about this point. Other then this I really like how the skin feels afterwards.  Again, it is not easy to find Illi products, but you can check out Jolse for this specific body lotion. The full sized product is quite expensive in my eyes and costs 20.98 US$. On W2Beauty or testerkorea you’ll find some other body lotions from Illi, but all are in the same price range.

    I don’t mind going out of my to purchase Korean skincare online but for body care… well, like you said, it’s much cheaper and convenient to purchase it at a local drugstore. I really can’t imagine spending $20 for a body lotion lol I think I’ll pass on this since it seems like just an average body lotion. Thanks for the review! ^^

      I agree, if it wouldn’t have been for the MeMeBox I never would have bought this for the price, but it was a nice thing to try nevertheless :)

    Daran würde ich nun wirklich gerne einmal riechen :) Ich mag Zitrusdüfte eigentlich sehr gerne, die riechen immer so frisch.

      Diese riecht auch wirklich nach Zitrone, was ich eigentlich echt gut finde. Schade nur dass sie so teuer ist.
