Default Squalane & Argan Oil for Wrinkles

Hey folks! Have any of you lovely ladies ever tried either one for fine lines/wrinkles? I've seen a few serums on Etsy and I've been VERY curious but I'm really being a PJ about make up right now and its sort of in the same category so I don't wanna be too hasty. Anyone have a review?

Squalane is supposed to be a great moisturizer for people with very dry skin. It's comedogenic though, so those who are acne-prone shouldn't use it. Argan oil is supposed to be a nice oil also, and it's got anti-oxidants.

Neither of them (or any oil for that matter) does anything to eliminate wrinkles. Moisture is nice, but it doesn't reduce/prevent/fix wrinkles. The only things that reduce wrinkles are Retin-A and (some) Copper Peptides.

People may think their wrinkles look better, but it's only because the wrinkles are moisturized and plumped up temporarily. It doesn't last past the next washing. When it comes to anti-aging products, I don't want to waste my money, so I only use products that are scientifically proven to do anything. No oil has passed that test.
