Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.

I fully understand that some people find lengthy skin-care routines to be excessive and a waste of time. If you're one of those people, you can go ahead and stop reading right now. But I have found that adopting a carefully planned nightly beauty routine is excellent when it comes to soothing anxiety and generally relaxing before you hit the sheets. My multi-step process helps me mentally unwind and slip into a chill mindset before bed — and I don't hate that it also makes my complexion look a little better. 

When I stumbled upon this video guide to beauty blogger Jaleesa Moses's nightly routine, I had to watch. (Have you seen her skin? Perfection.) According to Moses, her skin is sensitive, acne-prone and falls in the "combination" category. The products she's found to work with that complexion type are clearly doing wonders for her (again: look at her skin!), so if you fall into a similar category, watch the full video below and allow her thought-out routine — complete with helpful explanations of what each product does and why she likes them — to soothe you into the weekend.
