I absolutely love cleansing. I love the feeling of clean skin, I love the ritual of thoroughly taking my makeup off and I love the time it takes where it’s just me, the products and the mirror. Doube cleansing at night is a must for me and I often experiment with different combinations. The brand new Pestle & Mortar Erase & Renew Double Cleansing System is literally one of the most beautiful and effective combinations I have tried! Here is everything you need to know.
I don’t believe I have ever tried anything from this brand before, however, this first experience has been an amazing one. Pestle & Mortar Erase & Renew is a brilliant and seriously luxurious double cleansing system.

Pestle & Mortar Erase Makeup Removing Balm
This balm is absolutely gorgeous. It starts off solid and then melts into the skin, instantly breaking down makeup and lifting it off the skin. It removes all makeup and SPF on the skin so is the ideal first step for your night time cleanse. It’s formulated with grapeseed oil, meadowfoam, pumpkin enzymes and prickly pear seed oil which fight free radicals and are rich in fatty acids to boost skin cell renewal. This feels absolutely amazing on the skin. After melting it down and massaging it over dry skin, you remove it with the exfoliating muslin side of the cloth.
Pestle & Mortar Renew Illuminating Gel Cleanser
This gel is a little similar to the Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel which I love, in the sense that it has an oil-gel texture. This is the second step in the double cleanse; another super luxurious product. It’s packed with fruit enzymes (papaya and mango) to refine and hydrate the skin. Superoxide Dismutase tighten pores and helps prevent wrinkles, fine lines and age-related pigmentation. You use the soft side of the cloth to gently polish this off the skin.
The Pestle & Mortar Erase & Renew Double Cleansing duo literally leaves my skin gleaming and it feels as soft as if I’d had a professional facial. It is quite something. I have only been using this for a few evenings, but I am absolutely addicted. I have never looked forward to taking my makeup off so much! This is cleansing euphoria…
You don’t need to double cleanse in the morning, so you can simply use one pump of Renew to get skin ready for the day. Personally, I am worried about the Renew gel running out before the Erase balm so I am going to just stick to using this at night for now.
One downside of this bit of double cleansing magic is that the Pestle & Mortar Erase & Renew Double Cleansing System is £72 which is a definitely on the pricey side. It’s a shame really. You can find it for £65 ish HERE right now though. If you like a serious cleanse, want to remove every trace of everything and to feel skin softer and smoother than ever, then I’d say it is completely worth it. It’s beautiful.
