Unfortunately, we can not refund our shipping costs for returned packages - the cost of shipping (original and return) will be deducted from any refund or credit you may receive. For more questions about the status of your order, please email concierge@aqsscottsdale.com.

Please check the tracking estimated delivery times to confirm someone is able to receive your package. If no one will be available on the day your package is expected to arrive, you may be able to request a hold on the package and pick it up in person at your local USPS, UPS or FedEx Office. Once a package has been marked as “delivered” by the carrier, we are no longer responsible for the package. We can not provide replacement or refund for packages that have gone missing after delivery confirmation.

You will receive an email confirming delivery of your package. If you have received a delivery confirmation email and you have not received your package, you should contact your local USPS or UPS with your tracking number or attempt to speak directly with your delivery person.

Please note that USPS cannot initiate a search for a missing package until 7 days after the ship date. If your package has been lost, stolen, or misplaced once delivery has been confirmed, it is the responsibility of the customer to track or file a claim with the carrier. We will provide any information needed in the event you need to file a claim.

Biologique Recherche

How can I order Biologique Recherche with you? Can I add some products to my order?

Our company focuses on building an epic relationship with you and your skin. We want to limit product disappointments, a reason why we emphasize a conversation and/or consultation prior to purchasing Biologique Recherche. We are honored to be part of your skin team! To purchase Biologique Recherche, please send us an email at orders@aqsscottsdale.com OR send a direct message via Instagram to @aqs.scottsdale or @thedailyskinformative and we will be happy to assist you!

With any order, you can add Biologique Recherche products by writing us a sweet note in our comments box during check out OR send us an email at orders@aqsscottsdale.com. The remaining invoice total will be sent to your email for completion.

Can you use retinol and P50 together?

Short answer: NO. For VERY selected skins, P50 and retinol (retin-a, tret, adapalene, etc.) can be successfully used. This requires a skin consultation and proper diagnoses. Honestly speaking, there is no need to overdo the exfoliation. With either form, you get an appropriate level of exfoliation but in different ways.

Can Masque Vivant be used 10 days in a row?

Unless otherwise noted by your Aesthetician, we recommend not overdoing your masking routine. Simplicity is key. Allow your skin to take in what you feed it with rest days!

Can you use other product lines with Biologique Recherche?

Yes, you can! The key is what products you are using that strays from the line, ensuring it plays well with the brand’s philosophy. The best results do come from using primarily Biologique Recherche with 2-3 products that stray from the brand.

How do you use a milky cleanser?

Wash your hands with soap and water before cleansing. With dry hands, put about 2-3 pumps of cleanser in your hands and massage your face and neck for a solid 1-2 minutes to ensure a thorough cleanse. Rinse with tepid to cool water. Follow with your prescribed protocol.

Does Biologique Recherche use fragrance in their products?

NO! Everything in the brand is pure ingredients with no fragrance, parabens, mineral oils, silicones, and all the froo froo we don’t like. We believe added parfum should be limited to your perfumes and candles. ;)


Why are your Deviant prices different from their website?

Due to import & shipping fees, products from overseas entering into the US market typically see an increase in price to cover those costs. This includes Deviant Skincare. All Deviant products ship complimentary express shipping with tracking, getting to you faster and securely! 🫶🏼

Do you offer discounts?

At this time, we only do special promotions during the holidays & our birthday! Keep an eye out on our Instagram for updates and promotions.

Please note: Most of our brands do NOT allow for any discounts. These brands include, but are not limited to: Biologique Recherche + Amoln Candles. Other brands we carry request limited discounting out of respect to their craft.

the KHUSHBAR | خوشبر

What does Khushbar mean? How do you pronounce it?

This is a combination of Bisma’s two spoken languages, her two cultures, coming into one. Khush means happy in Urdu, but is also the beginning of the word that means scent/fragrance - KHUSHboo. Bar is very literally derived from the English version of a bar. In Urdu, it means over and over. Combined, it can be “the happy scent bar” or “happiness repeated”. This is where our scent identity comes alive, where we discover and play. Together, they bring forth something powerful. Your sense of self.

Pronounced exactly how it is spelled, khush-bar. NOT kush-bar; KHush-bar.

How can I extend my perfume’s longevity?

Our favorite way is to apply Biokiss or a scent free balm on your pulse point and spray your perfume on top. This includes your wrists, sides of the neck, chest, and even legs if you desire. We also love to mist our clothes to ensure we get coverage of the scent all over.

I blind bought my perfume and now I hate it? Can I return it?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of our products and vendor policies, all items at aqueous. are FINAL SALE. We encourage you to purchase a perfume sample before committing to a full size bottle of perfume to ensure your connection with fragrance.

What does niche perfumery mean?

Niche perfumes are brands that only specialize in perfumes and fragrances.

What is a sillage?

How far the fragrance projects around you :)

What is a “cold throw”?

When the candle is unlit, how far it projects in the space it’s in.

How can I care for my candles?

Trim the wick before each burn to cut off the “mushroom” that forms after burning. The initial burn is the most important burn. To ensure an even wax melt and prevent tunneling, burn the candle for up to 3 hours or until the wax is evenly melted. Burn candles in an area away from flammable items and where there are occupants. Please never leave a lit candle unattended. Always diffuse a lit candle with a candle lid or covering instead of blowing it out.

I want to save my candle vase. How can I remove the excess wax?

There are two methods of cleaning your beautiful candle souvenir -

Place your candle in the freezer for 3-4 hours. The wax will harden and separate from the bottom, making it easy to remove and clean. This works best for glass vessels.For concrete vessels or stubborn wax, place the candle on a heat proof surface. Pour boiling water into the vessel, leaving about an inch of space from the top. Melted wax will rise to the top. Any stubborn wax bits left can be removed with a spoon or butter knife. Let the water cool and wax reharden at the top before straining the wax. DO NOT pour liquid wax down your drain. Clean with soap and water if needed to remove any smut build up!
