RE: Mouth tape options
I've used Somnifix and found it isn't big enough or strong enough. As for the 2 inch mouth tape, I found it helps to use chapstick on the lips and fold the lips a little inward before applying the tape. I haven't tried the Silicone tape yet, but found the cloth tape works pretty good, -- but it's rated "air permeable" so I still get leaks coming out of my mouth.

I find that wetting my lips beforehand helps removal. The tape still sticks firmly to the skin around the mouth.

A bit of oil based lotion seems to help remove the residue.
