In brief: You can always try..

Cetaphil oil control soap, if that doesn't work try a brand called "boots" this can be found at target.
If that doesn't work contact me again and i will recommend stronger washes :].

In brief: Hypersteatosis

Hypersteatosis is a very, very common problem and if it's just facial hypersteatosis you may get some results of taking the birth control pill.
But you won't really know this until you have already risked scarring your face with acne. See a dermatologist now and get this worked out in a logical manner.
