I'm starting to think the razor is defective or not properly assembled.
I would suggest getting a tried and true gillette TTO razor, if its adjustable put it on a mild setting.
Let your face rest for a few days and use your electric or a cart razor as suggested.
Your lather should hold soft peaks (they should be a bit rounded at the tips) and be shiny. too dry and the peaks are stiff and pointy, too wet and it just becomes a watery mess.
Prep your face with lukewarm water, maybe you are using too hot water that is making your skin sensitive?
Let the lather sit for a minute or two and if it dries out whip it around with your (slightly wet) brush before the 1st pass.
Go wtg, and before you rinse the razor see if there is stubble in the lather you shaved off.
Chuck Norris gets a BBS shave with a wallpaper knife, and he has never changed the blade.
