what moisturizer do you use? For me, I find that how oily or shiny my face gets seems to be more of a function of what moisturizer i'm using.

Also, this may sound weird, but even if my face tends to get oily, I have found that if I use a very thick, heavy, creamy moisturizer at night (since sleeping oily isn't that big of a deal), that seems to take care of oiliness during the day time.

I use Pond's extra dry skin cream at night (something VERY counter-intuitive to do if you have oily skin) then I use Dan's moisturizer during the daytime...The heavy moisturizer also seems to take care of flakes. See if you can find a lighter moisturizer to use during the day.

Finally, keep in mind that certain make up will make you oily. I always got oily with bare essentials by 10 or 11 am. (work starts at 7)
