From now until May 22, cult-favourite beauty brand The Body Shop is partnering with our favourite local coffee chain Elephant Grounds to bring us a woodsy themed pop-up café event with exciting exclusive offers.
In honour of its latest product, the Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask, the cosmetics and skincare brand will bring a touch of woodland tranquility to Elephant Grounds in Sha Tin New Town Plaza for fourteen days, turning the store into a little garden oasis, decorated with flowers, hanging chairs, and neon lights to boot.
Visitors to the pop-up store can help themselves to a well-earned dose of R&R with four special nature themed drinks and desserts – the Uji Matcha Latte ($45), Charcoal Rose Ice-cream Sandwich ($40), Iced Honey Citron Smoothie ($48), as well as the Coffee Oatmeal Crunch Ice-cream ($42).
On top of that, shoppers at New Town Plaza's Body Shop can also enjoy 10 percent off certain food items at the pop-up café, and if you spend $500 there from May 11 to 22, you can even get a free coupon for pop-up café's exclusive Charcoal Rose Ice-cream Sandwich!
The pop-up café will also be hosting a series of workshops where you can learn how to make environmentally-friendly coasters using natural charcoal, pulp, and dried flowers. To participate in the workshop, all you need to do is shop at any Hong Kong Body Shop branch anytime from now until May 18, then register for free online here using your receipt. However, note that tickets for the workshop are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis only, so sessions could be filling up fast. If you're interested, make sure to register for a ticket now to avoid disappointment.

Born and raised in Hong Kong to expat parents, Sarah grew up as your typical third-culture kid, caught between two worlds. As someone who is nosy (or just curious) and loves the written word, there was never any other career that appealed to her as much as journalism. When she’s not busy on her mission to find the line between not enough coffee and too much coffee, you can find her exploring the city or getting stuck in a good book.
