Neutrogena vs. Equate Anti-Wrinkle Cream

I needed another tube of something with retinol and decided to try the Walmart version of Neutrogena's Anti-Wrinkle Cream (no SPF, retinol, B5, vit. E).

The ingredients are very similar in comparing the list on the Equate box to the ingredients listed at the Neutrogena website. I can't tell if the product is like the Neutrogena simply because in the past, I've used the anti-wrinkle anti-blemish, but it's similar to that -- smooth with no fragrance. There is NO SPF in this, which I don't mind because I either use a separate sunscreen or use this at night.

The price comparison:

At (because I didn't check the price at Walmart): Neutrogena Anti-Wrinkle is $11.79 for a 1.4 oz. tube.

At Walmart: Equate Anti-Wrinkle Cream is just under $7 for the same size tube.

If the quality is like many of their other products, I expect this will work just as well at the Neutrogena at a! lmost 1/2 the cost.
