When it comes to skin care products, are CVS/Walgreen's (or generic of your choice) brands the same as L'oreal, Olay, etc.?

Have you ever gone from the name brand to the generic and had similar results?
Specifically, I like Olay's Pro-X line (which I use with Retin-A cream from my doctor), but CVS offers their own version which is a lot cheaper. Is it worth switching?
Along the same lines, are there any drugstore retinoids that have similar results to prescription Retin-A? Getting to the dermatologist is a pain.
