I’m From Nyeok Body Wash and Body Lotion Review
This post contains affiliate links. Product provided by Wishtrend.
I rarely buy products made specifically for the body, simply using up whatever didn’t work on my face. However, sometimes it’s nice to spoil myself a bit extra. Since I love most of I’m From’s offerings, I had to try their new line of body care. I’m From Nyeok Body Wash promises to cleanse without stripping the skin and contains plant oils and surfactants. A perfect pairing with Nyeok Body Lotion for a complete but simple body care routine. Both are available on Wishtrend (code LUCY15). The complete line also has hand wash, but I didn’t get that.
The brand describes the scent as a smoky-woody aroma with Elemi Resin, Patchouli, and Agarwood notes meant to transport you to “Hanok strolls at the silent falling dusk”. The only name I recognize is patchouli, but the whole blend smells great. More about that later.
How to use
Lather up with the body wash to get clean
Follow with the lotion for soft, nourished skin
I’m enjoying the set and am definitely happy I got both products, because the scent would likely not mix well with a differently fragranced product. The body wash is gentle but effective at dealing with odor, even the intense post-workout stench. The lotion is nourishing but not sticky and is very easy to apply all over the body.
The best (but potentially most deal-breaker) part of this set is the scent. It’s noticeable but not overwhelming. I bathe and do body skincare before bed, and the aroma definitely permeates the whole bedroom. The first night I used the set, I thought the scent was gone by morning. However, when I got home from work, I could definitely smell it in the room and on the sheets (I think at night I eventually got nose blindness, but being gone for work reset my senses). All of this to say that if you like the scent - awesome, because it lasts a long time. But if you or your partner don’t…
Another great or not so great feature is the glass packaging. Normally, I love skincare that comes in glass, because it adds a certain level of luxury to the experience. However, having a shower gel in a breakable container prevents me from using this as often as I’d like. Because I share a bathroom with two children (it’s the only bathroom with a tub), I have to hide any fragile things under the sink. So every night I have to remember to take out I’m From Nyeok Body Wash before I bathe, and I often forget. Still, I can’t risk leaving it out in the open and having curious little hands drop and shatter the bottle. Even some adults stay away from shower products in glass since they become slippery when wet. And yet putting this in plastic would certainly take away from the overall experience. Sigh.
Overall, I’m really enjoying the set and am glad I got it. I have the other scent - Geuneul - but don’t want to mix the scents, so I haven’t opened it yet. Stay tuned for that review in the future.
