All I can think of is baby wipes, maybe keep some in your bookbag or in your locker, and at lunch or something go to the bathroom and "clean" where ever you feel greasy and it should hold over until after school...also make sure your soap isnt drying your skin out, making it produce more oils, thus feeling greasy.

They make little "refresher" wipes to clean up on the go. I think this would be perfect for you. You can keep them in your backpack and freshen up in the bathroom during the day.

I heard face powder does the trick. you should carry a sheer one with you, and reapply throughout the day. It is known to reduce the oiliness and greasiness on your skin. bareminerals works great but you could just get one at your local drug store

The wipes are a good idea. Also, make sure (double make sure ) you're getting all of the soap and shampoo off of yourself when you shower.

Sometimes when you use harsh cleansers it can make your skin dry and cause it to produce more oil. Use lotion on your body and an oil-free moisturizer on your face. If nothing else, it'll at least make your skin a little healthier!

I agree with Kerry. Though babywipes are great, they make you more greasy if you have oily skin. Blotting paper absorbs the moisture leaving you dry and not so shiny. Maybe you could combine the two, so your clean but then remove all the grease? Carry a body spray too, as I think if you smell fresh you often feel fresh too.
