This Delectable Beauty Hotpot Is A Must-Try | Clozette

While there is wisdom in getting older, pining for days when our skins were tight and supple can't be helped. It's unfortunate that the fabled fountain of youth remains elusive. But there are, of course, many products that promise to help your skin rewind its aging process. Collagen is among the many ingredients that have been touted to give you young complexion. The ingredient has been made part of different products — from moisturisers to flavoured drinks, and now: a hotpot.


A peek at the interiors of Tsukada Nojo Manila 

Tsukada Nojo is now in the Philippines, and they brought along their signature dish, Bijin Nabe (beauty hotpot), with them. Hailing from Singapore and with roots in Japan, Tsukada Nojo offers tasty food with a bonus; their beauty hotpot is made with soup containing collagen from Jidori chicken, which is said to be the chicken counterpart of Kobe beef.


The Collagen Soup before boiling



Filipinos have developed quite a palate for Japanese food, with ramen bars sprouting here and there at a very quick pace. But Bijin Nabe is a different kind of culinary experience. With the Golden Collagen Soup as its base, the meal is served in an almost ceremonial way. Once the soup has reached its boiling point, you will be served a small portion of it to taste. The soup, as it is, has a decadently rich chicken flavor.

Vegetables and tsukene (ground chicken meat) are added to the soup once chicken portions are served. The farm-to-table vegetables lend a sweet taste to the rich soup, making it milder. Once the vegetables are served, shrimps are added into the soup. After the shrimp, you have the choice of adding noodles or rice to the remaining soup. 



The meal truly feels like an experience. Even without counting the benefits of collagen, the Bijin Nabe from Tsukada Nojo is a culinary treat for folks young and old.

Tsukada Nojo is located on the 2nd floor of S Maison, Pasay City, Philippines.

Kylie Jenner's lip kits are one of the most coveted makeup products right now, so it's no surprise that they're almost always sold out. It's a good thing then that the reality star created one for the benefit of Smile Train, a charity that helps children with cleft lips and palates, because the sales of the lip kit have now amounted to nearly $500,000.


New at Sephora SG


There are *lots* of new Korean brands to try at Sephora Singapore, including Blithe and Kocostar. We were there to witness the unveiling of the brands, and we're mighty excited. Follow us on Instagram @clozetteco so you can take a peek at collections and brands before they hit stores with us.

Luxury for millennials?



Louis Vuitton has tapped into the millennial aesthetic via a collaboration with hip brand Supreme. The collection is definitely more chill and apt for those who want some luxury without having to sacrifice their laidback style.


Quirky Stickers



Luxury designer brand Anya Hindmarch is translating some of their quirky designs to tech. The brand, which became massive because of its “I Am Not a Plastic Bag” design, has launched stickers for iMessage. The chat stickers have the same quirky graphics as the brand's leather stickers, which can be used for handbags and cellphone accessories.
