Hello

One possible solution:

In[20]:=
f[x_] = Log[x]*x;
lowerLim = 0; upperLim = Pi;
Integrate[HoldForm[Evaluate[f[x]]], {x, lowerLim, upperLim}]

Out[22]=
Integrate[HoldForm[x*Log[x]], {x, 0, Pi}]

If you prefer to have the HoldForm wrapped around your expression you
could (in addition) apply the replacement rule

In[23]:=
Integrate[HoldForm[Evaluate[f[x]]], {x, lowerLim, upperLim}] /.
  Integrate[HoldForm[x_], y_] :> HoldForm[Integrate[x, y]]

Out[23]=
HoldForm[Integrate[x*Log[x], {x, 0, Pi}]]
