Nose taping after cast removal - how do I get the tape off in the morning without wanting to cry?!

Hello all,My PS has recommended taping my nose each night to help reduce swelling. (I have thick skin and the swelling has been comically bad!) I really do think it's helping but it's not much fun to peel the tape off in the morning. My surgeon's office recommended using oil to loosen the tape, so I've been drenching the tape with coconut oil and leaving on for a few minutes before peeling the tape off, but this doesn't seem to work. Maybe I'm just not leaving the oil on long enough to loosen? Maybe water would work better? Just wondering if anyone has any helpful tips? Thanks in advance!
