I use breathe right and I find it washes off with soap and water and slightly rough washcloth or facial scrub sponge.

Use cold cream, baby oil or any oil based product, like olive oil.

Easy - scotch tape. Apply scotch tape to area with adhesive and pull. Off! Oil was too messy.

I don't understand? Where exactly do you place the scotch tape?

Over the strip to remove, or under the strip when first putting it on? Unsure...Please help. Thank you!

After you take the strip off your nose, use the scotch tape to remove the glue that remains on your nose

I have used the washcloth scrub and cold cream methods and still find it doesn't remove completely. It's after I've applied my powder foundation that I can see the glue still :-(

Tea Tree Oil will remove all the stickiness left behind, and it would be a better option (mixed with an oil like baby oil) to remove the entire strip also from the delicate skin on the nose.

Any tugging (with tape) to lift off the nose strip, can..and really may cause those spider veins/broken blood vessels in that delicate skin on your nose.

Any kind of "gluey stuff" will come right off your skin with Tea Tree Oil.

When removing those strips off your nose, you really don't want to rip them off *you want to do it gently* because it only will take one too many times of doing that, that you'll break blood vessels in the skin on your nose, as that skin is very thin, and that will cause those tiny "spider veins as they call it" to be present.

Oil of any kind, baby oil, vegetable oil, olive oil, those will work, but tea tree oil will get off any and ALL residue of the glue.

Scotch tape may work at lifting up the Breathe right Adhesive strip from ones nose, BUT...the more one does it that way, the more one risks breaking blood vessels in that thin skin that covers the nose.

If oils like were mentioned (olive oil, baby oil cold creams) leave a residue of stickiness still on your skin, *Tea Tree Oil* will remove the strip and the sticky glue extremely easily by gently rubbing around the strip until it loosens up, and without damaging your skin.
