So If I used antibacterial handwashing soap on my face could I see the same results as with BP since they both kill the bacteria. I tried using antibacterial soap for sensitive skin on my face and I kind of like how it cleaned all the oil off me. I had a really oily face... like puddles and used this soap and my face was oil free. Can I use this instead of BP with the same antibacteria results? (the few times I have tried this I haven't broken out from the soap)

I don't think you could - most BP treatments are leave on, which allow for the medication to really penetrate the skin and get bacteria underneath, wheras soaps are wash off. Also, BP helps slow down the oiliness, since it penetrates the skin - and soap would dry out the top layer, but not underneath.

You could use both of them, though, as long as you were sure one wouldn't be overdrying with the other.
