In brief: All slightly differ

All tend to dry out acne, but BP acts more like a topical antibiotic.
Tea tree oil has some antibacterial properties, and salicylic acid actually deposits the acid in the acne follicles to clear them up. Depending on your type of acne I would still only pick one to try like a BP and then clean your face with either tea tree oil or salicylic acid wash. then see derm if not improving
